Dave is an Unreasonable Fellow. Dave has participated in 3 programs, including Unreasonable Impact Asia Pacific 2019.
Dave is a lifelong inventor and entrepreneur with twenty years of experience developing and implementing technology-based solutions for complex problems. His groundbreaking work at Pelagic Data Systems (PDS) not only has achieved rapid, extremely low-cost results in frontier markets but it has also put breakthrough technology and data into the hands of small-scale fishers to enhance livelihoods, fostered locally-tailored approaches to sustainability, and provided the transparency required for administering protected marine environments and delineating fishing rights in settings with multiple, often competing, stakeholders.
