David Shulman is Vice President of Finance at Obscura Digital Incorporated, a San Francisco company that sits squarely at the intersection of art and technology, delivering immersive, interactive and innovative digital media experiences to clients world-wide.
Davids professional experience includes senior finance and sales management positions growing CyberSource, a payment processing company, from start-up to billion-dollar public company; working as CFO to turn a moribund legal services firm (ABC Legal) into a focused, technology-driven powerhouse that now dominates its industry; as well as numerous consulting projects, working with small companies and non-profits, on strategic growth issues including budgeting, operational planning and performance management.
David’s professional focus is on bringing a disciplined yet well-rounded approach to financial management, to growing creative organizations.
Outside of finance, David is an accomplished artist and co-founder of the Five Ton Crane Arts Collective. Working primarily as a collaborative artist, David’s work has shown publicly in San Francisco, Delaware, Dublin Ireland, and New York City. You can see an example of his work, the Raygun Gothic Rocketship, currently on display at Pier 14, along the San Francisco waterfront.
Blending these interests, David recently joined the Board of Directors of The Crucible, a local industrial-arts non-profit. He began teaching in the DMBA program in the Fall of 2011.
David received a BA from the University of Michigan, and an MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management. He lives and works professionally in San Francisco, and maintains an art studio in West Oakland.
