Dave Goetz started CZ in 2000, after the company that employed him sent him to the Stanford Publishing Course at Stanford University in 1999. He realized, "Hey, I can do this," and the entrepreneurial journey began. Dave has a high boredom factor, which drives him to keep learning and staying fresh and relevant.
Dave is a passionate (though third-rate) fly fisher, and he and a buddy publish a regular fly fishing podcast called "2 Guys and a River". Dave has also published several books, including "Death by Suburb" (HarperOne), "Native Tongue: Translating Your Message into the Language of Prospects" (Big Snowy Media), and The Fly Fisher's Book of Lists" (Big Snowy Media).
Dave has four crazy kids and wife who puts up with his fly fishing. Yea!
