David has always had an interest in learning and teaching complex systems. Before he was working with AWS, he spent his days learning and teaching board games at his local board game cafe in hometown Columbus, OH. Over the last six years working in tech, he has gone from a self-taught Ruby developer to a 4x AWS certified senior consultant in cloud technologies, and now a Training Architect at Pluralsight. David holds both professional-level AWS certifications and is passionate about helping people unlock their career potential through learning cloud skills. When he's not building courses, you can find David out hiking around Seattle with his wife Myia and his dog Oliver, or inside playing board games or role playing games.
