Hello and thanks for visiting my personal website. I’m David Papandrew. I’m an entrepreneur living in San Francisco who loves to create online businesses and digital media products. I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2006 when me and a good buddy created Fanpop, a network of fan clubs that connects people with their passions. Together with our dedicated but small team, we grew Fanpop from nothing more than an idea into a popular web destination that draws over 15 million monthly visitors and generates 7 figures in annual revenue.
Recently, I’ve set my sights on two key projects. The first project is Biztoolschool, a website that aims to give small business owners a host of resources to help them grow and prosper. The second is my OCP Reference App, a resource for physicians, that I launched in 2011. Despite having neglected development of the app since the initial launch, I’m planning a significant upgrade in the coming year along with a complementary website. In addition to the aforementioned projects, I love helping others like me. If there’s anything I can help you with when it comes to helping you grow your business let me know!
Here’s a little about my personal life: I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Hawaii. I moved to the “mainland” to attend college in Los Angeles, California and Cambridge, Massachusetts. At one point in time I was working on a Ph.D. in music and did an abrupt u-turn when I moved to California to work for a variety of tech firms during the first dotcom bubble. I’m happily married to my high-school sweetheart and wife of 20 years, Pamela Chan. We have three lovely, rambunctious children ages 13, 9 and 3. When I’m not driving my kids to soccer games, swimming and music lessons, I enjoy cooking, reading, exercising, playing the ukulele.
Fanpop is a large network of fan clubs that connects people and their passions (movies, music, tv, books, hobbies and more). Fanpop has been entertaining pop culture enthusiasts since 2006 and is visited by a global audience over 15 million people every month. I am the co-founder of the site.
Biztoolschool is my newest project. Started in 2015, Biztoolschool aims to provide informative screencasts and tutorials for high-quality, reasonably priced business and productivity apps in the market (especially those geared towards small businesses and bootstrapped startups).
OCP Reference is a mobile application available exclusively in Apple’s iOS App Store. OCP Reference provides physicians and medical professionals with a comprehensive database of brand name and generic birth control pills in their pocket.
