David was responsible for estimating commercial and utility-scale solar projects ranging from 250 kilowatts to 20 megawatts. While at DRI Energy, David successfully estimated and constructed over 12 megawatts of photovoltaic solar projects, totaling over $40 million in revenue. In 2011, David helped assist in the development and creation of Flaherty Brothers Construction. He handles the project estimating and project management and will seek further business avenues for Flaherty Brothers Construction in the rapidly expanding alternative energy business. For his side job, David invests his time inventing various appliances that help construction projects and everyday activities. One of his most important and current projects is a solar-powered, patent-pending product that drastically improves cost, time, and space efficiency compared to other solar-powered devices — the way the product is designed ensures maximum sunlight exposure, therefore, more electricity. In his inventions, David aims to decrease our environmental impact, as well as make life simpler. David resides in Redwood City, CA. While not working, David enjoys playing music, participating in various water sports, and biking
