David A. Ulevitch is the founder and CEO of OpenDNS and EveryDNS.
David started OpenDNS in 2005 after identifying a need for a better performing, more secure DNS service than what was previously available to network administrators.
David attended Washington University in St. Louis, where he earned a degree in anthropology. While at Washington University, David created one of the first DNS management companies, EveryDNS, to fill his need for web-based DNS management software. EveryDNS grew from a personal project to a service with nearly 100,000 users world-wide within a few years. David was also in part responsible for the creation and operations of the California Community Colocation Project, which provided free colocation services to over 130 non-profits and after merging with the Online Policy Group successfully sued Diebold Election Systems in Federal Court (see OPG v. Diebold). David has an extensive background in networking and operations.
