David Nelsen


David Nelsen is an entrepreneur and crusader defending data privacy, tech decentralisation, and the open-source philosophy. Formerly a developer in health-information exchange, David’s concern for our fading freedom of secure global communication led him to found DarkIron, a startup rooted in his belief that digital privacy is a human right. Last year David moved from San Diego, in Southern California, to Lisbon, a place he calls “O lugar mais Solarengo da Europa.” His new home shares similar sunny weather, a relaxed vibe, and a growing tech startup energy. Once settled, David looks forward to being back in the western saddle riding a horse or on his surfboard catching a wave.
