David J. Smith, Sr.
I am a retired probation manager with 30years public service. During my career I oversaw the operation of multi-million dollar government facilities with self- contained supplemental power, water and sewage systems. During my tenure I oversaw multi-million dollar juvenile detention and treatment facility operating budgets. In 1993 I oversaw the construction, staffing and furnishing of a $ 1.1 million government facility for the Riverside County Probation Department. This effort entailed coordinating activities with the project contractor, the Riverside County Medical Center and three juvenile treatment facilities.
From 2000 to 2003 I again led a $5 million state funded a public/private partnership of law enforcement (sheriff, district attorney and police agencies), school districts, local non-profits and the California State University.
I’m current the Managing Director of DaShure Capital Partners (A boutique capital formation and capital placement firm). I’m the principal of David J. Smith and Associates (A businesses consultancy) and am a co-managing director of 2020 Lion Media Group LLC, an internet based broadcast training network.I am also theauthor of the Private Lender’s Handbook, a guide to asset-based commercial real estate lending.

I’m a graduate of the University of California at Riverside (1975 Dual BAs) and an alumnus of the University of Phoenix (2000 MBA). Most importantly I’ve been happily married to spouse Shirley for 44 years.
