David began studying piano in his teens with his father. He continued his music education at the University of Nevada – Reno, studying classical piano, jazz, voice, and concert choir. He began playing electric and upright bass in his mid-twenties and went back to UNR to study jazz on the upright. After moving to Santa Cruz, he continued his music studies at Cabrillo College and then at San Jose State University, earning a BA on upright bass and an MA in Music Education. He also spent many years with the Truckee Alliance for the Musical Arts (TAMA) as a musician, producer, director, and as president of the board. TAMA was a non-profit organization that produced music shows with local musicians, using the profits to create scholarships for high school students going on to study music in college.

He is an active real estate agent and spends time turning wood, flying kites, juggling, building kayaks, crossfitting, and being a computer geek. He is married and has two children, with whom he went on a grand adventure traveling the USA for almost 8 months in an RV.
