Large Web Site Consultant, David Hobbs Consulting
David guides the process of implementing large websites, including CMS migrations and redesigns.
David started out his professional career flipping bits in C, but was quickly drawn to project managing internet products (for example an early internet fax product) and then to the web. He has made complex websites a reality from the web development shop perspective (while CTO at Forum One Communications), the in-the-trenches internal team side (negotiating with internal stakeholders and driving a major website consolidation project at the World Bank), and now as a consultant.
Over the last couple of years, David’s clients have included the World Bank, BIO, Realtree, Thomson Reuters, the Centers for Disease Control, McKesson, and MBC.net.
Although David now spends most of his time indoors, previously he lived in a mud hut for a couple years in Chad in Africa working with an association of farmers, water community groups, and a trash collection team.
