David Chouinard

Hi, I'm David

As a teenager, I was a hacker. I built robots and devoured programming books. Founded my first company at 12 and always carried business cards. My insatiable curiosity often got me in trouble. Fascinated by flight, I became a pilot before I could legally drive a car.

Today, I’m still a hacker. I hack human interactions. I invent tools that enable people to understand and create in powerful ways. Harvard grad, I helped build FlightAware, advised startups at Techstars and now play at Disney Imagineering R&D. I’m passionate, smart and hungry as ever.

In 6th grade, I donned my suit, pitched my school and got a budget for starting an after school robotics program. To this day, I love sharing my passion.
Endlessly curious, I founded TEDxMontreal in college and grew it to 50+ volunteers. Here, the start of a quest to share "ideas worth spreading".
It's exhilariting to see impact — my work has been featured in outlets like the TODAY show, NBC News and FOX.
