David has worked in education for 16 years. He began his career as a network technician at the Orange County Department of Education and soon moved on to become the Director of Technology at a mid-sized elementary school district. In 2012, David began work as a Chief Business Official and in 2018, after four years with the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District, was selected to be the district's new superintendent. He is one of a handful of superintendents in the state to have come from the business side of the school district, rather than the classroom. David lives in San Diego with his wife and four children (ages eight, six, four, and two). He believes his role as a father, more than anything else, informs his work as a superintendent.
