Bottle Rocket Presents, After the Glass Breaks with David Harrison

The phrase “glass ceiling” certainly isn’t a new one. Nor are any of the discriminatory barriers to advancement that unfortunately exist in our workplace today.

Each and every day, people from all walks of life are overcoming the odds to break through. Each person’s journey to success is unique as are the challenges and obstacles that they face on the way. But what happens after the glass breaks? How do we turn our obstructions into victories and our challenges into triumphs?

“Reflections of the past are shadows that hover over our future selves. Reflections without learnings are dangerous, they will keep you from moving forward. This is a time to learn from these reflections so we don’t live in dark spaces.”

YOUR HOST

DAVID HARRISON

Funnest girl dad, husband, Vice President of Technology and the best dang grill master this side of the Mississippi (if I don’t say so myself)…

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a curiosity about “how things work” and the science behind it. This curiosity led me to pursue a career in technology and engineering. For the past 20 years, I have continued my lifelong passion for discovery, exploring endless possibilities in the world of technology, wireless, wireline, TV and Media, IP, AI and IT. To me, there’s nothing more exciting or satisfying than witnessing an “a-ha moment” transformed into a living, working thing. 

I am equally as passionate about helping others and giving a voice to those with interesting stories to tell. I have been personally and professionally influenced by many I’ve had the pleasure of crossing paths with and am excited to share my stories and those of some truly amazing colleagues, acquaintances, and friends. My wife and I reside in Dallas and are blessed with two wonderful daughters, one of which is following in my footsteps pursuing her degree in Electrical Engineering. I am a forever “Girl Dad” except when i’m behind grill pursuing my other passion: perfecting the delicious art of all things BBQ.
