There, he participated in math competitions throughout the state. Crawford was also the catcher for University’s baseball team that competed in Tennessee State’s championship series multiple years in their division.
Crawford embraced multi-tasking early on. He worked his way through college in the computer labs at East Tennessee State University, and credits his mentor Rob Whelan, who oversaw all of the computer labs on campus, for igniting his interest in Computer Science. It became his major at ETSU, as its core curriculum complemented his math and physics coursework. His new passion also led to a secondary job in 1996 while attending ETSU with the Tennessee District Attorney General’s Conference that is responsible for overseeing the state'sstates 31 judicial districts. Crawford networked all of the judicial districts’ satellite offices across the state of Tennessee and provided courtroom technology support for major cases. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science from East Tennessee State University, and while enrolled in graduate school there, he also taught undergraduate information technology courses at ETSU, instructing more than 180 students enrolled in his six classes.

Described by his peers as charismatic and energetic, Crawford tires to engage every real estate professional he meets into a conversation that leads to talking about RESO, as he genuinely embraces his nonprofit organization’s mission to positively change the future of real estate.
His community activities have ranged from remaining an active supporter of his church in Knoxville, Tennessee, to undertaking local fundraising efforts for a variety of causes over the years. He continues to support Sigma Phi Epsilon, Paralyzed Veterans of America and RPAC (the Realtors Political Action Fund).
In his free time, Crawford is likely to be found spending time surrounded by his family: his wife of 12 years and their two young children. Crawford is a foodie who enjoys cooking to relieve stress, often with a glass of Rochioli Pinot Noir in hand, whipping up a meal that will also feed neighbors stopping by for a visit.

Dave is a software developer by trade—and an entrepreneur and innovator by calling. His current startup, Yodata (yodata.io), aims to shift today’s Big Data balance of power from vendors to data owners and users, starting with the real estate industry.
Yodata is a place to give and get access to the data that drives today’s apps. For
developers, Yodata is an open-source repository for co-creating structured-data APIs used to run data-driven apps. For data owners (businesses and users), Yodata is cloud data storage giving users complete control over access to their data. The result: developers no longer need to design, store, maintain, and secure databases of user information. And data use, security, and privacy rights are returned to the people who own them.
Dave’s worked for 20-plus years in real estate technology. His trail-blazing real estate CRM product Agent Achieve is still used by industry leaders today; the company he co-founded to launch it, Sonic Eagle, was acquired by First American Title company in 2006. Throughout his career, he’s designed data architectures and processes that have been adopted by leading MLSes and real estate software vendors.
Starting his first company right out of high school, Dave’s been a performer and risk-taker ever since. He is equally comfortable on a main stage in front of thousands or leading a boardroom conversation about strategy. He’s toured the world as a professional jazz vocalist and arranger, and today fronts a big band doing standards from the Great American Songbook. He’s also an avid home cook, inspired by a desire to reverse-engineer his grandmother’s rice and beans.
Dave earned a BS in computer science from UC Santa Cruz. He lives in Oakland, California with his wife, two little kids, dog, cat, and backyard chickens.
