In 1994, they set their sights on Fool.com, The Motley Fool's website. Today, the Fool has grown into an international multi-media network offering financial solutions to millions of individuals worldwide seeking to make better financial decisions and improve their overall quality of life.

David appears frequently in the media and as a featured speaker across the country.

David serves as co-chairman of the board of The Motley Fool. In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with his family, following Tar Heels basketball, and reminding younger brother Tom that, though he is older, he has more hair."
