David Jedeikin's Biography

Member Info

San Francisco, CA
Aug 2010

A native of Montreal, Canada, David Jedeikin came to America in search of fame and fortune, but ended up finding greater fulfillment (yes, really) as a software engineer. At the age of four his family decamped for a three-year stint to the Mediterranean shores of suburban Tel Aviv, and proceeded to road-trip it across the region. As an adult he's lived in Toronto, Los Angeles, Lansing, Michigan, Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco, a nomad even before his world journey. During this time he managed to co-edit a start-up Internet magazine; direct a world-record-breaking TV telethon; serve as assistant editor on a Canadian-French-Mexican made-for-TV production of Tarzan; and carve out a niche in San Francisco's technology industry. For the moment, he's laid down roots in California, but the lure of further travel is never far from his mind.
