David likes to describe himself as renaissance man with a wide variety of interests and hobbies, including continuing to improve his ability in Spanish and French, playing piano, cooking, weight training, maintaining his vehicles, attempting to justify his numerous computers (6 at last count), travel, wine, food, to name just a few. (Others may describe him has having undiagnosed ADD.)
This pattern is reflected in David’s post-secondary education, in which he acquire an undergraduate science degree with a specialization in computing science, an M.B.A., and a law degree, all from the University of Alberta.

David served briefly as a member of CBA’s National Council shortly before it was disbanded, and on one of the teams of the CBA National’s Governance Transition Task Force.
Outside of the practice of law, David is a member of the board of directors of NAIOP Edmonton (a commercial real estate education and advocacy association). Previously, David was a board member for Relish, Edmonton’s Food on Film festival, a member of the downtown Rotary Club, the chair of the Centre for Family Literacy, and a board member of the Northern Light Theatre.
