David found his way to the Khyentse Vision Project through a kindred project, 84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha, where he helped administer the translation database and publishing tools. Having become familiar with 84000’s ways of supporting a global team of translators and editors, it was a natural move to help Khyentse Vision Project do the same. Since the 1990s, he has had a dual career in information technology and religion. In addition to training and certifications in computer science, he has a master’s degree in theology, specializing in contemplative spirituality and ministry. He has been a Dharma student for thirty years, practicing Mahāmudrā, Dzogchen, Zen, and other meditation traditions.
When he’s not working on his cloud-computing duties, David can be found in the “cloud of unknowing,” meditating and teaching. Headquartered in Las Vegas, he is often away, living part-time in Berlin, or leading interfaith meditation gatherings at churches and retreat centers.
