TechLife Community Builder - Dave Ungar


Dave Ungar

I started my career in financial accounting, but quickly found business processes and information to be my calling. I spent many years in the roles of systems analyst, business analyst and quality analyst, which has given me an appreciation for the professionals that make an IT company successful. Iā€™m currently managing projects and programs at OCLC - a role that brings all of my past experience together in a place that's always exciting.


I have many things I'm passionate about: Arts that challenge your sensibilities, learning something from everyone I meet, experimenting and finding better ways to work, and connecting ideas with experiences that lead me to new ideas and new experiences.

I grew up in a small town between Cleveland and Akron. Moved to Columbus 17 years ago, after a few years in Chicago. Columbus is a great city. I like that I can continue growing up here.

I had been involved with a youth group for about 15 years as well as being involved with some professional organizations in Columbus. But I have recently been spending time with the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center, a Settlement House that provides many forms of assistance to people in need, locally.
(@TheCRC ) Neighborhoods and communities are important to me. Reminders that not everyone has the same choices or opportunities that I do are also important.
