About me

photo 1 - Version 2My name is David, and I’m 26 years old. I graduated from Cornell University in 2010 with degrees in English, History, and Italian (yes, I was a triple major).

Like many recent graduates, I felt a lot of uncertainty about what to do for a career after graduating college. The fact that I graduated just two years after the Great Recession hit certainly didn’t help matters.

I started this blog in the summer of 2012. At the time, I hadn’t found a job that made the most of my interests and education. I felt stifled and frustrated because I knew that I had so much more to contribute than what I was doing for work.

Rather than sit and wait for opportunity to knock, I decided to make my own opportunity by starting a project that used my creativity and my writing skills. So I created 20somethings Blog: a blog where twenty-somethings could share their career stories and give advice to other young professionals.

I really hope that you enjoy this blog and its stories of young adults in today’s economy. If you’d like to know more about me, connect with me using the information on this page.

These are some guest posts that I’ve written for other blogs:
