Dave is co-founder of the Coalition for Capital Homesteading, an association of organizations and individuals dedicated to empowering every person through equal access to the means to own productive capital. He is also a project manager at the Center for Economic and Social Justice, a Washington D.C.-based think tank which promotes a “just third way” between monopolistic capitalism and socialism, including employee ownership of business and reducing inequality of wealth through monetary system reform.
Dave is the founding owner of Esteo Group Inc. (Excellent Service Through Employee Ownership), a trucking company based in Atlanta, Georgia. He developed the “Justice Growth ESOP” business structure, in which employee-owned corporations are chartered to support widespread ownership education and spin off other employee-owned companies, each of which do the same.
Dave has worked as a Series-3 futures broker, sales manager, and small business owner. He studied business at Louisiana State University. He has been involved in libertarian political campaigns and causes as a ballot-access petitioner and fundraiser, and believes in the importance of building populist coalitions for economic reform that transcend party lines. He is married with three children.

His passionate advocacy for freedom-based solutions to the problems of poverty and inequality, and his strong background in alternative economic theories and policy proposals can help the Grantcoin team continue to develop our monetary system and build a broad-based movement.”
