I’m really excited to interview David Kelly of DMKthinks.org and Sumo.com about San Diego, California. David’s tips for the best things to do in San Diego are awesome because he’s a former New Yorker who moved to SoCal to escape the cold. Since he moved to San Diego in 2013, David has been busy exploring the city and experiencing life as a local with a tourist mindset since everything is new to him.

Who is David Kelly?
David Kelly is the General Manager of AppSumo Originals, a $3 million SaaS business. I met David through our mutual friend, Noah Kagan, who I interviewed about Austin, Texas, back in 2018. We even rode bikes together for the Sumo 50 charity bike ride that raised money to buy laptops for children in Austin.
As the General Manager for AppSumo Originals (SendFox, KingSumo, and more), David’s job is end-to-end P&L, leading the team, defining strategy, executing ideas, and getting RESULTS. Before AppSumo Originals, David was the first full-time marketer for Student Loan Hero — which was acquired by LendingTree for $60 million in July 2018. He’s also been featured in stories on OKDork, Neil Strauss, and Ramit Sethi’s email newsletter (I Will Teach You To Be Rich).
Here are a few articles that he’s written:
