David Tran

David studied Computer Science at UC Berkeley. He was fascinated by the potential of both how broad and how deep one can go in the understanding the digital world. He then went on to become a software engineer at Uber & Salesforce.

In those companies, he spent time on internal tools, growth hacking, mobile apps, optimizing dispatch, and anti-fraud backend development. On the side, he manages a set of SaaS apps, and took what he & Jim learned there to build the foundations of xFusion.

Outside of work, he loves learning about entrepreneurship, psychology, investing, and personal development. His life goal is to inspire people to live abundant lives by creating free & high-quality content on the topics of personal & financial development.
