Dave Goetz started CZ in 2000, after the company that employed him sent him to the Stanford Publishing Course at Stanford University. He realized, "Hey, I can do this," and the entrepreneurial journey began. Dave has a high boredom factor, which drives him to stay 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, which is one of the larger podcasts in the fly fishing universe. 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 kids and a wife who puts up with his fly fishing. Yay!
