For over 25 years, David and his family have enjoyed the San Bernard recreationally. They have enjoyed living full time on the river after buying their home in 2014.
 
David’s career experience is in the domestic and international offshore engineering and construction industry, He was responsible for both operations and marketing dimensions with executive management and P&L accountability for both. 
 
His goal is to see the completion of the Mouth opening and the follow-through on the maintenance dredging program. He also expects FOR to grow as an organization with broader community engagement providing the resources to support continuing and future environmental initiatives to benefit the San Bernard River and its communities. His experience and background in business operations, management, marketing and organizational skills will serve him well to serve FOR. He believes there are many ideas to continue to improve the quality of the river and it's community through stewardship of environmental programs.
