Mental Pivot

Notes and observations from a lifelong pursuit of learning.

Hello and welcome to the website of David Papandrew. Friends and coworkers call me “Papa”. I’m interested in habits, ideas, learning, self-improvement and entrepreneurship. Technology is near and dear to my heart as well. I've lived and worked in Silicon Valley since the late 1990s. I co-founded two companies during that time: a youth-oriented social network and a machine learning diagnostics platform. I currently reside in San Francisco, California with my wife and 3 kids.
