David was born in Berkley, California and at the age of five, moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Post high school, he moved back west to continue his education. In 1992, David earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management with a minor in Finance from San Diego State University; this developed into a 23 year successful Wealth Management Practice. While in California, David enjoyed the underworld of scuba diving and exploring on his motorcycle. Seeking additional adventure in his life, David moved to Eagle River, Alaska to experience all of the outdoor splendor Alaska has to offer. When not in the office, David enjoys scuba diving, fishing, camping, golfing, hiking, hunting, riding his snow machine and traveling to both near and far destinations. His most remarkable trip was to Mesquite, Nevada where his life was forever altered. Dictated by above, this encounter led to his greatest gift of life, his beautiful wife Shannon. Together they delight in their home church ACF here in Eagle River and support K-Love Radio and Christian Healthcare Ministries.
