I started my running shoe career selling running shoes on the sales floor. That’s where I learned to love runners and to love running shoes. From there I spent 12 great years at Road Runner Sports where many knew me as Super Dave. I moved on from that great job to Germany where I worked for Adidas and then back to California to work for Zoot. Some of the shoes I worked on include:

Adidas Supernova Sequence

Adidas Supernova Glide

Adidas Adistar Raven

Zoot Ultra Kalani

Zoot Solana

More famously I believe is I’m the guy who killed the Adidas Supernova Classic. It was such a great shoe but the time had come.

Today I spend my work day doing market research for the running shoe industry. If you are at any of the marathon majors maybe we’ll see each other.

More importantly I’ve been married to the same great woman for 23 years and I am the proud father of a United States Marine.

I’ve done a few Ironman races, stand alone marathons and ultras. I love the lifestyle and will love it the rest of my life.
