Dave is the mastermind behind The COG Space. 4 years ago, he traded in his beloved VW Microbus for a Kona Jake, biking 24 miles roundtrip from home to work. It only took one week for Dave to become hooked on commuting by bike. Feeling unfulfilled with his corporate America job, Dave pursued his MBA in Sustainable Systems from the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, in order to shift his career from helping the system to an entrepreneur devoted to making a difference in this world. The COG Space combines Dave’s 10+ years of experience in Technology and management with his passion for sustainable communities, active transportation, and socially-just business.
Aside from biking around town, Dave generally brings his bike along on roadtrips, testing the infrastructure of other cities, exploring rural towns, and discovering the wonder of Cascadia. He also finds pure joy in playing with his dogs, running, volunteer work, the outdoors, and supporting the mighty Portland Timbers Football Club.
