David spent his early years in the northeastern US, but his love of the outdoors and the allure of the Rockies brought him to Colorado for college. After finishing his undergraduate at Colorado College, he completed a masters degree in environmental policy at Colorado State University. Throughout his summers in college and grad school, he worked for youth conservation corps around Colorado, and spent free weekends skiing, climbing, camping, and volunteering for conservation organizations.
Prior to joining the SJMA, David directed the Adventure Education program at the Canyon Country Discovery Center in Monticello, Utah. During his time there he managed outdoor education programs for schools, youth groups, corporate retreats, and adventurous adults alike. As conservation director David will oversee and expand the volunteer stewardship programs for SJMA. In his free time David can be found mountain biking, climbing, skiing, running trails, and paddling the rivers of the Southwest.
