Although I have never met Dave in person, I have spoken with him several times on the phone in the past with various projects and such. He seems to be a very intelligent man with a good business sense. If I was looking for a job and closer to him I would be honored to work with him.
For example, he took a good 45 minutes out of his busy work day last week to help me try to get an ancient hoist going, and to share his knowledge on them.
Good luck with the hunt!
