David Roach is a technology director, and lead front-end developer in the greater New York City area. David is the 5th of his name (hence, "five"), which makes any family affair (where there are multiple Davids) pretty complex.

More importantly, David has 11 years of proven development experience leading development teams as a technical director and front-end developer.

David has worked with small to large creative and development teams building best-in-class responsive, accessible web applications, microsites, and portals.

David is craft-focused, an advocate for technology, and a pragmatic problem solver. He believes in being technology-agnostic, yet informed and well-rounded; better equipped to solve for a broad range of complex business problems.

As a team leader, David has continuously demonstrated the ability to foster great people, not just good developers.

Articulate and with a real ability to translate complex technical problems into cogent and flexible solutions, David is a strong client-partner and discipline lead.
