Prior to coming to Wheaton Academy, Dave worked professionally in politics and government for 7 years helping run US Congressional campaigns. He developed a love for high schoolers through a part-time youth ministry position at his church. Dave loves serving Wheaton Academy and having the opportunity to help students wrestle with life questions and build genuine community. Dave especially enjoys sharing his interests with students, and having them share their own passions with him in return. Outside of the classroom, Dave is an avid lover of Ultimate Frisbee, Disc Golf, and board games, and he can be found enjoying all of these activities with his wife, Kelly.
