David provides insight and instigation expertise to the commercialization, and asset management function of SENTIR Research Labs — contributing to investment structure, completing funded transactions, and effectively maintaining portfolio developments. He also manages the various assets through the business development to commercialization stages by guiding investment decisions — providing oversight on business processes from deal instigation through deal structuring and legal execution.
His extensive background includes a Bachelor's in Marketing & Economics, various certifications, and over 20 years of experience in energy markets, including sales, trading, structured transaction, and asset management. Initially involved in building Williams' power business using physical and structured transactions, David also worked for Goldman Sachs with responsibilities ranging from sales and trading desks to investment banking and operations. He joined STI-TEC as Director of Risk & Compliance, directing the company through various audits.
David is most excited about continuing to develop a portfolio of successful new Tulsa-based commercial businesses for investors. As a mostly-lifelong Tulsan with a short stint in NYC, David loves helping to encourage the economy of the place he calls home. When he’s not working with SENTIR, David is an avid cyclist, cook, and cookbook collector. You can usually find him at Oklahoma State Cowboys athletic events or local farmers' markets.
