Personal pronouns: He, him, his

David joined the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), a clean water non-profit based in Annapolis, MD, as the Maryland Outreach Manager in December of 2014. He recruits, organizes, and works with CBF volunteers and members of the community in the field on ecological restoration projects (riparian buffer/wetland/living shoreline plantings, regenerative agriculture, oyster restoration, etc.); and at the grassroots level across the state. He also serves as CBF's Community Partner for Break Away, a national non-profit that focuses on growing active citizens through experiential learning.

Additionally, he is a Keeper Aide Volunteer with the Primate Unit at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park, a certified Maryland Master Naturalist, and a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park (biological anthropology and geology), with previous experience in academic services, research, and elementary education. He has always been a lover of nature and the outdoors and feels strongly that all people should be stewards of the planet because of our reliance on clear water, fresh air, healthy land, and a safe environment - something all people deserve access to.
