Recent reviews

David provided excellent support for social media over the last several years.

David accepted a position from my company and didn't end up doing any work... he communicated every week that he'd get things done, but turned out he didn't end up doing anything for months when I finally had to let him go and looked into what was completed/needed to be done still. It seemed he had a lot of problems in his personal life that might have prevented him from working. It put my company reputation in a bad spot with our clients.

David did a great job, was always attentive and would think outside the box.

We brought on David to grow CloudPeeps’s Twitter audience - and his work went well! He quickly began growing our audience while also increasing follower engagement.


Shane Steele

David has been an invaluable addition to our team. He was hired to take over all day-to-day social media responsibilities and in just a few months helped us triple the size of social media accounts. David has the rare combination of technical growth hacking skills plus the creative chops needed to develop copy and images for social, with Photoshop skills to boot. He also brings a uniquely empathetic and human approach to handling customer support issues. I'd definitely hire him again!

Kyle Walters

David helped me with quite a few projects. Well prepared, thoughtful, and easy to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend working with David if you get the opportunity!

Carrie Melissa Jones

David helped us grow our CMX Twitter over the last 6 months. At the start of the project, we worked together to set expectations and outline what success would look like. David then immediately set to work and grew our following by over 800%, offering suggestions for optimizing the content we shared to accomplish our goals. He's lightning fast at responding and was great at incorporating our feedback quickly. I'd highly recommend working with him as a social growth hacker.

Kate Kendall

Wow, what an incredible addition to the CloudPeeps community – it's so great to have David here! He's smart, responsive, professional, and highly-aware – and has the right, in-demand skills needed to grow your social channels and business. I've enjoyed every interaction we've had so far and would recommend hiring him in an instant!
