David’s passion for built environments began on the golf course. Starting the sport at age 13, he loved the combination of experience, landscape, and design. He turned his interests into a career path and earned a degree in landscape architecture and urban design.
Raised in a family of real estate developers, David instinctually makes connections between architecture and opportunity. He transitioned out of design and into business strategy early in his career. He lived and worked in Amsterdam for six years, building collaborative relationships in over 40 countries. Diverse global conversations about placemaking inform his ambitious end goals.
David is sought after as a leader and is highly engaged in mentoring young design professionals. He lives in Venice Beach with his wife and daughter. An avid surfer, his love of nature has expanded from land to ocean.
