Introduce Yourself: Dave Rosenblum
What's Your Story?
Hello, my name is Dave Rosenblum and I was born and grew up in Portland, Oregon. I wanted to go away to college and worked hard in high school. I lettered in track as a javelin specialist and was actually recruited by the track coach at Pomona College, but ended up going to Wesleyan, followed immediately by grad school at Wharton.
