During his time as an undergraduate, David was an active participant in the summer immersion program at one of our sister schools in Germany. David continues to foster relationships with the faculty at HTW. Upon his return to Oregon, David entered the MBA program where he earned the Outstanding MBA Student award.
As an instructor in the School of Business, David shares his love of technology with both faculty and students. David considers himself to be an early adopter of technology and often will be the first to own the newest and greatest electronic device.
As an advisor for the Degree Completion Program, David brings a unique perspective to the Business Degree Completion Program, having himself come up through its ranks. As a nontraditional student, David knows the difficulties of juggling homework, family, career and social life.
David enjoys working with the student clubs at SOU. While in the MBA program, David held the office of president of the MBA Association. He continues to work with student clubs as the Faculty Advisor for both Alpha Kappa Psi and the SOU Business Club. David is also an active participant in the Hospitality and Tourism Management Club (having been a journeyman baker and working in the hotel/restaurant industry).
Prior to joining the School of Business at Southern Oregon University, David spent 20 years in the retail floor covering industry. David's last venture was to start a floor covering store from the ground floor and built the business into a flagship retail outlet in his community.
David enjoys spending time with his children, taking martial arts classes with his son, Jacob, exploring photography with his daughter, Jessica, motorcycle riding, touring with the top down (convertible), touring Southeast Asia, scuba diving, working in the yard, and researching new technology.
