"Since moving to the Pacific NW, David used his knowledge of advance green building techniques to complete a green remodel of their home and volunteered with several organizations focused on sustainable development including Social Venture Partners, Cascadia Eastside Leaf, Northwest EcoBuilding Guild and International Living Future Institute. Previously, David lived in Washington, DC where he pursued his passion to work on global climate change. He served on the Board of Directors before becoming the Executive Director of the Green Building Institute, a leading green education non-profit in the Mid-Atlantic region. He also served on the DC Jazz Festival Board of Directors to raise funds for the annual DC Jazz Festival.
"Formerly, he lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 30 years where he was the Chairman and CEO of the East Bay Conversion and Reinvestment Commission (EBCRC) - a non-profit focused on converting closed military bases into new sustainable economic uses. David received his Masters from the University of California at Berkeley and his undergraduate degree from the University of South Dakota. He also attended the Harvard Business School’s Executive Education Program, Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management as well as HBS’s Social Enterprise Conference on Global Climate Change and the Wharton Business Club’s Green Business Summit. He loves to travel through the Puget Sound with his wife and three-year-old black lab to find fun new places to fetch."
