"The Texas Bullet Train – Accelerating the Texas Economy"

Presentation Description: The Texas Bullet Train will be the first high-speed train in the country, connecting Houston to North Texas in less than 90 minutes. It will drive huge economic growth as it is being built, and when operational, create a new high tech industry right here in Texas.

David helps to build the first, true high-speed train in America by reaching out to North Texas communities and businesses in raising awareness of the positive impact the railroad is having on transportation in Texas.

After more than 33 years’ experience with AT&T, David incorporated a small business to share big business expertise. After two plus years of working with clients, David accepted the challenge to help establish the truly transformational train as a member of the Texas Central team.

David has led Chambers of Commerce, Work Force Boards, Educational endeavors, social betterment organizations and charitable entities. These efforts spanned a very wide spectrum of activities, but all centered on coordinating communities and colleagues to realize mutually beneficial outcomes for multiple and diverse constituencies.

David is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, and lives in Frisco, TX with his wife, Shanyn and son, Spencer. And, after four sons, is very proud of his three granddaughters!
