Dave Waldman spent his childhood bouncing back and forth between the two coasts. After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, he returned to Southern California and worked as an engineer in the commercial aircraft industry. A few years later, he moved to Lake Tahoe, where he managed a bowling alley that he co-owned with his parents and his sister and her husband. That’s where he met his wife, Jayne, and their child Daniel was born.
In 1998, he left the family business and the family moved to New Hampshire. After completing a program in Multimedia Development at the University of Massachusetts in Lowell, Dave went to work in the media services industry, producing educational software and video.
