David mastered his camping, canoeing, hiking, and fishing skills while growing up near Cincinnati, OH. In college, he began climbing on day trips to the Red River Gorge and experienced the thrill of multi-pitch routes in Red Rocks, Devil’s Tower, and Seneca. During this time he took his occasional running, biking, and swimming to the next level by competing in his first triathlon. Since then, he has raced marathons, triathlons, and trail races in Nevada, Ohio, Maryland, and North Carolina. David recently completed his first 50-mile trail running race in Virginia, and is training for the Diabolical Double, a hilly, 125-mile bike ride in western Maryland. David currently resides just outside of Washington D.C.
