Hi there, I’m David Spinks but my friends just call me Spinks. 

I’m a community builder and an entrepreneur originally from Long Island, now living in San Francisco.

I’m the CEO of CMX Media where we are building the community industry. Through CMX we organize events like CMX Summit and develop products, training programs and educational content all focused on helping you build stronger community driven businesses.

Before CMX, I cofounded an online cooking school with my close friend Nadia Eghbal called Feast and we participated in Batch 6 of the 500 Startups accelerator.

Before Feast, I cofounded BlogDash a platform to help businesses with blogger outreach.

I’ve also had the privilege to build community full time or as a consultant for some really cool companies like Zaarly, LeWeb, Udemy, Seatgeek, Binpress and more.

I’m still figuring it out. Always will be. I’ll very openly share what I learn on this blog.
