David Franz

I was introduced to the Smoke in high school, where I was able to observe and appreciate the dedication it took to train and compete at the next-level. I have been fortunate to learn from past and current members and look to return and make great contributions. I currently work as Marketing Manager for a private hospital management company where our business is primarily in the Chinese healthcare market. I have several tattoos and a dog named, Strider. The running theme is a large part of me, what can I say?
