Have Brain - Will Travel

Small businesses, non-profits, and other groups who don't have massive budgets often face a major obstacle in solving problems: they need some help, but they only need a bit. Most consulting firms aren't interested in working on projects that only amount to a few hours here and there, and their rates can take your breath away. Have Brain, Will Travel is different. Whether you need months of assistance, or just a long, well-planned lunch meeting, you'll get the help you need, and the respect you deserve, at a price you can afford.

The Have Brain, Will Travel  Pledge

I will help you.
Whether it's just pointing you in the right direction, helping you plan your journey from start to finish, or taking you all the way to where you want to go, I will leave you better off than than when we started.
I will respect you.
If you ask for my help, I will treat your problems seriously, and you as a human being.
I will charge you fairly.
You will know what you are paying for, and how much it will cost, and it will be a price you can afford.

Who I Am

My name is David A. Spitzley, and for over 15 years I've made a living developing database and web applications, a task which has allowed me to develop not only the obvious technical skills, but a talent for helping groups of people map out their work processes and determine how to get from where they are to where they want to be. More formally, I have a Ph.D. in Economics and Masters in Public Administration, which in combination grants me a wide range of analytical and organization knowledge and experience. I have also served in elected leadership roles in my community and in political organizations for many years, and am experienced in guiding group activity as well as working with individuals.


I can help you solve a range of problems, whether by addressing them directly myself, or by working with you to give you the tools you need to solve them yourself. Examples include:

Beyond those services I can provide myself, I have a broad personal network, and can call on it to obtain assistance for you with almost anything you can think of, including:


I've done many things over the years, and can bring that experience to bear on your needs:
