David is founder and CEO of Fit4D, a company whose mission is to improve the lives of people with diabetes, and chronic conditions, worldwide.
David was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, at the age of 36, while training for a survival race. A veteran of numerous running and triathlons races (including Ironman triathlons consisting of a 2.4M swim, 112M bike and 26.2M run), David committed to rebuild his life and provide positive energy to the diabetes community while coping with the condition on a 24×7 basis.
Beginning with shorter races, he gradually learned how to successfully race triathlons as a person with diabetes and within a year completed the famous Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco Bay. In 2003 and 2005, he raced Ironman triathlons again – though this time working through the delicate balance between food, nutrition and exercise. For both races, he also fundraised extensively on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) New York City Chapter.
In his journey as someone with diabetes, David has been fortunate to meet many incredible people with diabetes and their families. It is David’s personal passion to share his experiences, knowledge and positive energy with the diabetes community.
With over 20 years experience in the technology sector at startup and public companies, David decided to devote his energies to helping people with diabetes.
