David is an American living in Vietnam. When traveling or living abroad, David likes to show his appreciation for people by speaking with them in their own language. He has learned a lot about himself by interacting with diverse groups of people.

To achieve this, David and a talented group of multilingual people from around the world, created Polyhooks.
