During that time, Dave worked within the R&D team that created Ethernet over twisted pair wire. Dave traveled to over 44 countries during this period to support and troubleshoot network problems for AT&T and NCR.

Dave’s first job after graduating from The Catholic University of America was in the Inhalation Toxicology Labs of Hazleton Laboratories in Reston, Virginia. This lab was the setting for the best seller “The Hot Zone” which chronicled the early discoveries associated with the ebola virus.
