Hello and welcome to the website of David Papandrew. Many friends and coworkers call me “Papa" (I go by Dave too). I’m interested in habits, ideas, learning, self-improvement, and entrepreneurship. Technology is near and dear to my heart as well. I've lived and worked in Silicon Valley since the late 1990s. I co-founded two companies during that time, one in the social networking space and the other in the field of machine learning. I currently reside in San Francisco, California with my wife and 3 kids.
