David DelMonte is a technologist and educator. With a background of over 45 years in the Computer and Communications area, David has breadth and depth of experience in the development of “apps” - big and small - from mainframes to iPhones, and from modems to private satellite systems and fiber and cable connectivity. His team built a comprehensive private communications system that connected all of Asia with Washington, and Europe.
David was selected in 2007 as a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador. In this capacity, he uses his skills in technology and management, and his passion for the space program to visit young students in inner-city and suburban schools and lecture and teach about career possibilities and stimulate their thinking.
David started his career in 1965 with the UK Government. He moved to the US in 1969 to become a programmer at NASA. As the moon landings ended, he moved to the World Bank, where he worked in Washington DC, and much of Africa and Asia.
His passion with Greece started with a short visit in 1966, and from 1982, journeys to the Islands and the mainland almost every couple of years. In 2000, after retiring from the World Bank, David and his wife Beatrice, built a house on the island of Skopelos.
They spend each summer there. But David keeps in touch with the world through the Internet, and develops his apps, websites and other projects in the sunny aegean.
