David hails from Squaw Valley, California, where he lead an active childhood in the clean mountain air, finding enjoyment on the mountain, the basketball court and the golf course. He later attended UC Berkeley where he was a member of the 2005 Men's Freshman Nation Champion crew team. He went on to earn a second and a third place finish in the national championship regatta as a varsity rower. Graduating with a BA in Political Science, and curious about his National Team rowing prospects, he moved to Washington D.C. to work with The Wilderness Society and scull with the Potomac Boat Club. After many hard strokes on the water and hard work on The Hill, David turned his attention to other goals, including a stroll across Spain on the Camino de Santiago, and his current endeavor on the stage as an actor/singer. He's very excited to lead classes at CRUfit and share his passion for rowing and exercise.
