David was born in Vancouver and raised in Montreal, Toronto, and Winnipeg. He’s somewhat unilingual but speaks the language of urban design, place making and community. After collecting a Masters in Urban Planning from the University of Manitoba he packed up the Honda Civic, headed west and found a home in Edmonton. Since then and while in this great city, he has raised a family, made dear friends, managed multi-stakeholder projects for ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd., once did a stand-up comedy set at Yuk-Yuk’s and, unrelatedly, sat in the Speaker’s Chair in the House of Commons. In his spare time David is an urban farmer, “competes” on the Peloton, thinks he’s a gourmet cook after making a few Chef’s Plate meals, makes loud noises on his guitar, and collects and curates a book and vinyl record collections.
