About David Rodeback

David Rodeback has lived in American Fork, Utah, since 1998. He lived previously in:

  • Boulder, Colorado (10 years)
  • Moreland, Idaho (8 years)
  • Provo, Utah (4 years)
  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (1 year)
  • Jamestown, New York (9 months)
  • Moscow, Russia (then USSR, 2 months)
  • Alexandria, Virginia (4 months)
  • Ithaca, New York (9 years)
  • Rob and Cheri Hancock’s basement in Orem, Utah (6 weeks)

He was schooled at:

  • Aurora 7 Elementary in Boulder, Colorado (since renamed — the school, that is)
  • Riverside Elementary in Riverside, Idaho
  • Snake River Junior High in Thomas, Idaho
  • Snake River High School in Thomas, Idaho (Class of 1983)
  • Utah State University (one summer)
  • Brigham Young University
  • The Pushkin Russian Language Institute
  • Cornell University

He has taught at the following fine institutions:

  • Riverside Elementary — Spelling (a possible child labor violation)
  • Brigham Young University — Russian Language
  • Cornell University — Russian and Soviet Literature and English Composition
  • Cornell LDS Institute of Religion — Advanced Book of Mormon
  • Barratt Elementary — Pre-Algebra (volunteer)
  • Utah Career College (now Broadview University) — English Composition
  • (with any luck, this list will get longer)

He’s on this third career (depending on how you count them):

  1. Teaching Russian language and literature at the university level. (Never got off the ground, due to an unfinished PhD and a disappearing job market.)
  2. Computer programmer (mostly C++, C#, Perl, and some VB) — and database programmer, designer, and administrator. (Full-time 1997-2010, but there seems to be no end to the moonlighting.)
  3. Digital marketing (mostly PPC, including paid search, display, paid social — since 2010).

After blogging for years at localcommentary.com, he now partially neglects four blogs:
