Résumé: David Braverman

Personal Summary

I've written software for fun since the Carter administration, finally making it my career in 1995. Since then I've continually grown as a software professional, and as an effective leader who can build both teams and revenue.

The best days of my career have been with bleeding-edge start-ups like 10th Magnitude, where I've had the privilege and opportunity to become one of the most experienced Microsoft Azure professionals in Chicago. I've never wanted to be a rock star; instead, I've always been that great multi-instrumental session player whom the rock stars depend on to get the job done.

Along the way I've earned an MBA from Duke and a JD from Loyola University Chicago, traveled almost the whole way around the world, visited nearly every baseball stadium in North America, learned to fly airplanes, and kept up a ten-a-week blog posting routine on politics, weather, and technology.

You can find me online at LinkedIn and at The Daily Parker. Or send an email to find out more.
