About David Lowe

A practitioner of disciplined IT: Building capabilities with analytics, cloud, and process design solutions

Hello, I am David. I am an information technology professional and computer enthusiast. I like most things related to computer, ever since I got my hands on a Sinclair ZX81 personal computer back in 1981.

Throughout my career, I have been enjoying the journey of developing a comprehensive portfolio of computer skills and projects. I do this because I enjoy learning how technologies work and how they can fit together to create even better innovations.

I am a student of Seth Godin’s teaching, also a graduate of altMBA 14. His ideas of permission, tribe, linchpin, and shipping resonate immensely with me. I try to put all those concepts into the practice of my work every day.

I value capability-and-tools-building as the primary approach for me to do my best work. Over time, I hope to combine the AI/analytics innovations and permission-based marketing for building something that is remarkable.
