David LaPlante

I’m a 4th generation Aspen/Crested Butte native with a passion for skiing, cycling, and climbing. I live at Lake Tahoe where my wife and I are raising our boys Logan and Cody to be curious contrarian creative athletic wingnuts and moderately prepared for a world much flatter and weirder than when we grew up.

An intuitive and experienced entrepreneur with diverse skills and insights derived from decades of growing and leading businesses, technologies, and teams, I particularly enjoy translating human behavior/development science into marketing strategy technology. I’m an advisor to Chrysallis, a startup which aspires to be the "Netflix for behavior change" and aims to let people "do self-help” instead of reading about it, and Noble Studios, where I contribute my 15+ years experience in digital agency leadership and marketing strategy for brands.

A connector and storyteller by nature, I’ve led countless pitches and presentations and am a frequent public speaker on topics such as education, technology, health and human behavior, social media, and entrepreneurship.

In cahoots with Vail Resorts I put on the annual Snowcial at Heavenly Lake Tahoe and am a partner at WithLegends which produces sports-centered travel and special events with legends, celebrities, and VIPs.
