A History of Adventurers
What is this place?
David and Patrick have been together since 2003. We have traveled the world with family and friends. Our focus is usually on human or natural history.
In this website, we will be increasingly sharing what we have learned, seen, and done. It is a gift to you, the reader. We publish this with no expectations of anyone reading it. Rather, we send all this out to the world as a gift in gratitude for the many gifts we have received.
David Wright Gibson
David has spent many years gradually building some understanding of human history. He continues to be fascinated by the way our species works together to create and destroy, to birth and to kill, to love and to hate. He has a particular fondness for the history of the British Isles, and a strong interest in deepening his understanding of European history.
Professionally, David has over twenty-five years experience in technology, mostly educational technology for higher education. He is currently working with Microsoft colleagues to support educational technology firms as they partner with Microsoft. He began his journey in university textbook publishing and quickly gravitated to the technology side of the business where he worked to develop digital solutions to educational challenges such as psychomotor assessment of student learning. He spent many years working directly with university academic staff as they worked to support student learning with the developing technologies of the Third Industrial Revolution. As we move into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, he continues to listen and learn and work with leaders around the world as we work together to empower every person and institution in the world to achieve more.
Patrick Wright Gibson
Patrick is always fascinated by people. Where did they come from? How did they arrive where they are? What do they love? Who do they love? How do they live their lives?
Patrick worked in the restaurant business in Seattle, owning a restaurant at one point. He then stepped into social work where he worked with juveniles, HIV-AIDS, and then Aging and Disability populations. In 2012 he began his work in residential real estate, first apprenticing in Denver, and then building his business in Seattle.
