Aside from UT, he spent 20 years working with international environmental and humanitarian organizations and as a middle and high school English, US History, and environmental studies / outdoor education teacher in both Cali, Colombia and Boston.

Outside of school, Dave spends time running, biking, searching for good tacos, and enjoying all that the four seasons offer here in New England along with his cherished family - his wife, daughter, son, and his two best buddy dogs who listen to all his wacky green ideas.
