Davis “Top Gun” Kane joined eCity as a Project Manager this past August. In the short time he’s been here, Davis has not only done wonders for our Director of Client Services’ stress level, but managed to earn a killer nickname as well. We sat down with Davis over an energy drink and an “Active Projects” binder to get to know him a little bit more. Welcome aboard, Davis!

What is Your Daily Routine at eCity?

I like to get in a bit on the early side, grab some coffee, and do a rundown of all my projects so I know where we are and what needs to be done next. After going through my emails, I’ll grab a personalized pizza for lunch at Snap. I spend a fair bit of the day communicating, either internally or externally, so I’m writing a good amount of emails, chatting with a client on the phone, or heading out for a face-to-face meeting. I enjoy hanging out at work for a while and catching a later train home so I don’t have to fight the rush and I get a bit of ‘quiet time’ to take care of anything I wasn’t able to get to on the earlier side.

Describe Your Resume at a Glance.

I graduated from Temple University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree In Psychology. Before joining the eCity team, I worked as a Technical Project Manager at Curalate, where I managed the development and implementation of web applications for a number of clients.

“The role of a Project Manager is to make everyone’s job as productive and stress free as possible.”

I also have my own wedding, event, and portrait photography business. I have always loved photography; from the moment I was given my first camera I was hooked. After being introduced to a professional wedding photographer through a mutual friend, I began working as an assistant and learned everything I could about shooting weddings. After working as an assistant and second shooter for a few years, I started my own business, and I still pick up the occasional weekend gig when I can.

If you had a week off, you’d spend it…

Surfing in Costa Rica. I started surfing when I was 9 or 10 years old after I was given an old, dinged up short board. Since my first wave, it became my all-time favorite activity. I’ve never been to Costa Rica, but I have always wanted to go. Costa Rica is always warm, the waves are consistently good year-round, and the trip from Philadelphia is quick and relatively easy compared to a lot of other surf destinations.

Give me a Pearl of Wisdom related to what you do

The role of a Project Manager is to make everyone’s job as productive and stress free as possible. Additionally, communication is absolutely key to being a successful PM.

Why did you want to join eCity?

I really thrive in an environment where everyone wants to be the absolute best that they can be. After meeting the team, and hearing about the company, I knew right away that eCity was where I wanted to be.

What has been the highlight of your time here thus far?

Getting to know and hang out with everyone outside of the office.

If you had a super power, what would it be?

 Teleportation – easiest commute ever!

The Best restaurant in Philadelphia is…

Tequilas Restaurant. They have the best, most authentic Mexican food I’ve ever eaten. Additionally, their margaritas are incredible. It’s a fairly swank place, so I don’t go nearly as much as I would like, but I remember every meal I’ve ever eaten there.
