David, the youngest of three children, was born and raised in the Dallas area. He attended Brigham Young University and was called to serve in the Austria Vienna Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where he grew to love and respect the people and culture.

After returning from his mission and finishing his undergraduate work, David was accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M where he graduated with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

David and his wife, Michaela, were married in the Dallas Temple and have been blessed with 5 wonderful children who remind them of that which is of greatest worth. 

After working more than 20 years in the veterinary profession, David and Michaela have trusted in the Lord and have turned more of their time and energy toward serving those less fortunate. David is currently working toward making humanitarian work his full-time pursuit.
