I'm a lawyer and accountant who's devoted over three decades to advising clients on complex corporate finance, disclosure and reporting, and corporate governance issues. I've held board seats and executive suite positions in the mining, oil and gas and battery industries, and served as issuer's counsel for several SEC registration statements. My decades of experience give me a unique insider's view of the public and private equity markets and an encyclopedic knowledge of the business and technical issues I write about.
Over the last decade, I've earned a global following for my articles on the energy storage and alternative energy sectors. I've contributed to Seeking Alpha, The Street, NASDAQ.com, AltEnergyStocks, InvestorIntel and Batteries International Magazine.
I'm a 1979 graduate of the Notre Dame Law School and a 1976 graduate of the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. I was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in 1980 and licensed to practice as a CPA in 1981.
My diverse experience in corporate finance, natural resource development and energy storage give me a unique and sometimes unsettling perspective on the technical, economic and supply chain challenges facing the battery industry.

David White is a software/firmware/marketing professional and a long time investor. He has worked in the networking field, the semiconductor equipment field, the mainframe computer field, and the pharmaceutical/scientific instrumentation field. He has bachelor's degrees in bioresource sciences and biochemistry from U.C. Berkeley. He is a former Ph.D. student in biochemistry. He has done significant graduate work in EECS and business at Stanford (through SITN) and UC Santa Cruz. He was awarded a Certificate in Advanced Software Systems (about 1/3 of an MS in EECS) by the Stanford Computer Science Department. He also took most of Stanford's undergraduate Computer Science curriculum. He has been nominated for at least three separate Nobel Prizes (Economics and Peace). He came extremely close to winning the 2014 Nobel Prize in Economics. There are about 3000 nominations for each prize; but since the same people are often nominated multiple times the 3000 nominations lead to only about 250 to 350 nominees worldwide in a given year. With about 7.5B people in the world, the odds of getting three separate nominations are about 1 in 10**22. I also was a Research Fellow for Dr. Stanley Prusiner on the Scrapie project that won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. I probably had little to do with it; but I still get bragging rights.
