David on many occasions took on additional work without being asked in order to make my life easier and improve the overall process for our faculty. He would do this without fanfare or the desire or need for acknowledgment. This thoughtfulness and commitment to his work and to our organization bowled me over. When the opportunity for promotion into a different role within the organization emerged, I sadly but willingly recommended him for the role, knowing he was capable of nearly anything but of course disappointed that I would be losing him in my department. I can frankly say that no one was able to fill his shoes in the position!

Working in collaboration with NASA, David was the lead member of our team in developing a unique massive open online course. Not only does this course offer greater levels of peer to peer interaction than do other Saylor courses, but his efforts also helped to re-tool the delivery of course content; added levels of assessment and activity that had not been seen in previous Saylor courses; and have made it possible to provide live access to industry leading experts for 1000’s of our students.

I was consistently impressed with David’s work, yet more impressed with his character, dependability, and approach to life… his experiences through life around the globe have given him an effective and informed framework for life and work. David is an intelligent, creative worker, and an honest, fair, and thoughtful person.
