I am David Hoechstetter,
born of German descent in Pittsburgh, PA in 1958. I have traveled
extensively throughout the United States, but have remained a lifelong
resident of the Pittsburgh
area, except for a brief residence in east coast central Florida.
Education & Experience
Educated at St.
Edmund's Academy (elementary), Shady
Side Academy and Taylor
Allderdice public high schools, I hold a Bachelor's degree from
the University of
Pittsburgh, and a Master's degree in Public Management from
Carnegie - Mellon
H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management. I
have been involved in organizational development, business management
and supervision, sales and marketing since 1977. I started working
with computers in 1981.
I am a divorced father of two really great kids. They
live primarily with my ex-wife, but I do get them often, and they
are the most important
part of my life.
Hobbies & Interests
Ice Hockey is my first game of choice. I am a player,
a coach for my son's team, and a referee
part-time for a local Senior league. I also have a partial season
ticket plan to the NHL Pittsburgh
Penguins hockey games - GREAT seats, too! Sometimes I think
that the rink is my second home. I enjoy weightlifting,
health, nutrition and exercise. I have been an avid scuba
diver and I love motorcycles. I enjoy target shooting of guns
and am proud to be a Life Member of the NRA.
I am also certified as a personal fitness trainer by the American
Council of Exercise.
I enjoy computers and technology
products, and beyond business I am active in a few online single
forums. (Any good looking, intelligent single women out there?!)
I also have a strong interest in all cars, especially Nascar
racing and collectible cars, especially Ferraris.
I also enjoy antiques.
