Dave Johnson

Chief Technology Officer

Dave Johnson started his career at a young age creating the wildly popular, and industry-first Dragon’s Lair video game while still completing his graduate degree in engineering in southern California. He worked for many years in Silicon Valley’s semiconductor industry before starting Coupage after predicting a demand for products to support the new iPod introduced by Apple in 2001. Johnson shared the vision of the late Steve Jobs of finding a way to bring the iPod, and ultimately the iPhone and iPad, into everyday life not only for entertainment purposes, but also to improve the lives of millions of users. He strives to build products that make a significant impact on our daily lives in many areas including education, music and sustainable energy. Dave holds multiple patents and has won several best-in-design awards.
