With a business degree from Cal Poly University in California, his career began in food exports, followed by sales in high-tech firms in Silicon Valley and as a commercial risk management consultant. He is an expert at steering young companies with emerging process controls to effectively partner with Blue Chip corporations.
Over the years David has taken extended breaks from his career with a preference for overland travel that has covered the western hemisphere, Japan, and Europe. It was on his last road trip that he discovered his adopted hometown where he met his wife, Cynthia. They happily reside on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille in Sandpoint, Idaho.
David’s wanderlust began when he was 17, as a crew member on a trawler that sailed across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. His most recent journey was a 35,000-mile overland adventure from San Francisco to Ushuaia, Argentina, over dusty back roads along the entire Andean Mountain range through eleven countries.
