His wealth of experience shows in the tangible and practical tips and tools he has available for seemingly every scenario I bring up.

Maartje Bakker, The Unconventional Career Coach, Space to Think

For me, something that sets David apart in the business world is his long-time work in public safety. I love that he has experience doing things that feel crazy, unsurmountable, or even downright physically dangerous. With the context of my pro cycling career, I appreciated this when tapping David for advice in my own career development and difficult choices.

Brent Bookwalter, Olympian and NBC Sports Analyst and Commentator

 David has been an instrumental part of Tiller’s success and my effectiveness as a CEO. He’s been part of our story from the beginning.


He’s kept me in touch with my values and the vision that led me to start Tiller, and at the same time he has challenged my biases and pushed me to grow to meet our evolving needs.


I am, without question, a better leader and decision maker with David’s coaching.

Peter Polson, CEO Tiller Money

As I transitioned my company for sale, David provided invaluable coaching, helping me navigate the inevitable challenges that arise through the negotiation process.  David was able to quickly grasp the most critical elements of the sale from the operations and financials of my company to the emotional ups and downs that I was experiencing.


Because David’s been an entrepreneur himself he spoke from experience and could relate to the unique challenges I was facing.  With David as a trusted partner I was able to achieve an outcome far beyond what I could have achieved on my own.

Sean Murray, CEO/Founder, Real Time Performance

David has a therapeutic approach to business coaching. He is a good listener and synthesizer. He also helped me to clarify my goals without judgment. I highly recommend him.
