David grew up in southern Wisconsin in the small town of Darien, located in the southern lakes region near Lake Geneva & Delavan. He attended St. Andrew's Catholic Grade School and then Delavan-Darien High School where he played football, basketball & tennis. After graduating high school in 1992, David enrolled at DePaul University in Chicago where he began his pre-med studies...after two years at DePaul, David transferred to and graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1996 with a degree in Science Pre-Professional (Pre-Med). Tired of the academic world, he decided to get some experience in the real world before delving into medical school. David began his career with Northwestern Mutual in September of 1996. A believer in the saying "Life is what happens while you're making other plans!", David had planned to work a few years and then go to medical school and fulfill his vision of becoming a doctor - instead, he fell in love with the financial services business and hasn't looked back since.

Currently, David resides in Littleton, CO with his wife, Jessica, and their children, Uma, Fiona and Oscar. David enjoys all things outdoors - most notably are downhill skiing, hiking, fishing... and he has recently rediscovered his love for mountain biking. He enjoys watching sports: primarily the NFL (a Packers fan adrift in Broncos country), golf's major championships, as well as Sportscenter on TV; reading a good book, working in the yard, cooking (preferably on his beloved Traeger grill), and any time spent with his kids!
