David graduated with honors from the University of North Dakota with a BA in Music.  Upon graduation, he and his wife, Stephanie, joined the staff of Cru – an international missions organization focused on engaging college students' spiritual life. 

While on staff with Cru, David experienced many roles that developed him as a leader.  Those experiences included late night conversations with college students, mentoring students, leading summer missions programs, touring as a rock drummer (yep!), leading a creative communication department, and taking the role of Leadership Development & HR Director for a division of Cru.

David’s 18 years of experience working with students opened his eyes to some specific needs they have today.  Students are stressed academically & relationally, distracted, lacking self-awareness, unsure of their own purpose & direction, and lacking important life skills. David's vision is to see teens and young adults navigate life with a strong sense of who they are and where they are going.  As a student discovers those two things, he or she will gain more confidence and hope about their future.  As a certified Academic Life Coach, David works with teens and young adults to empower them to take ownership of their personal and academic success through positive decision-making, strategic goal alignment, passion identification, and discovering trademark values that design their future.

David lives in Fishers, IN with Stephanie and their 3 kids. He is a sports and music guy.   And he could spend all day with family and good friends, near mountains or a body of water, eating good food, and engaging in significant conversation.
