Provide a summary of the nominee's career path.

David stared his career as a computer technician for Katy Independent School District. he worked there for three years and help start a computer company that grew to 7 location in the Houston area. After expanding into other markets, David decided to take his technical expertise into BBQ pit manufacturing. Learning six sigma and lean methodologies helped bring efficient business operations to David's list of skills. Wanting to bring a human aspect to the technology side, David went on to work at a recruiting firm that also contracted technology services. This rounded David's career from learning business to running one. The last thing David needed was a class in investments, so he decided to work for a Real Estate firm handling acquisitions. He worked for one year then went right back into recruiting for oil and gas to see if his skills were relevant in other industry verticals. Looking for some better scenery and loving the Texas Hill Country, David took the IT Director position for the Alamo City Golf Trail in November 2009. In October 2011, David opened up his first fully owned company called ITSA LLC. After six years that company was purchased and he started SUURV shortly after that. He has been running SUURV since December 2017.
