A blackjack obsession in his native New Jersey fueled David's professional interest in gambling industry trends and players' needs. After realizing there was nowhere for players like himself to access independent gambling information in one place, he joined industry peer Warren Eugene in steering Casino.org towards being the world's #1 dedicated source of gambling information. Since 2001, he has been championing innovation and building teams of experts to offer in-depth guidance and casino reviews.
