The Longer Version (aka: The version only a mother or a stalker would love):
Back in 1996 while working at a radio station in Fairbanks, Alaska, David created his very first website. It was awful. So he made another one. That too was awful. Then he made a few more. They were still fairly awful, but they had potential. So with some examples at the ready, he then asked some of his radio station clients to trust him with their very first websites (NOTE from David, “Thank you Chena Hot Springs Resort & North Pole Coffee Roasters!”) and they turned out okay. So he thought to himself, “Huh, there could be something to this whole internet super highway thing,” and so he set up a little side business to make websites for his friends/clients during his off hours.
Within a coupla months, he’d left his job with the radio station, acquired a business partner, and started a company called WebWeavers in his dining room.
A few short years later they moved into offices, found some AMAZING employees (NOTE from David, “You know who ya are!”), and started winning awards (most notably the 2001 Bill Bivin Small Business of The Year Award from the Alaska State Chamber of Commerce) as well as attracting some big name clients (NOTE from David, “You know who ya are!”).
Professionally, things were going great. (If you want to know more, view this write-up in Alaska Journal of Commerce’s Feb. 2002 Issue for more details.) Personally though, while David and his young family enjoyed Alaska, they felt it was time to pick up stakes. This meant that David walked away from his ownership of WebWeavers, staying on as a full-time contractor, and moved himself and his family to Nashville, Tennessee in the summer of 2004.
In early 2008, David’s erstwhile partner at WebWeavers sold the company to a firm in Anchorage, Alaska and retired from the business. David then went on to work, first as a contractor, then, as a full-time employee for the new firm in Alaska. After quite a few years he left their employ in the spring of 2015 and started Baked Fresh Websites!
