David started in education while working at the Legislature, serving as non-partisan committee staff. After that, he spent six years at OSPI working on education finance and TPEP. He was a member of the first full four-year graduating class at River Ridge High School from North Thurston Public Schools and graduate of Western Washington University.
David grew up playing ice hockey (his mom is Canadian) and started playing tennis in high school. In his free time, David is either hanging out with his wife Taylor, his cat, or his adorable daughter Marleaux (all listed in the order he acquired them). If he's not at home, he's at work, playing tennis, going to concerts and sporting events, on a trip to Whistler, or most likely, in line at the Apple store.
