Born in Lima, OH, and “raised mostly at Moonlight Beach,” Encinitas, CA, Dave’s Dad owned a hardware store and built homes and his mother raised two boys. After receiving a BS in Business Management from San Diego State University, Dave married and joined the US Air Force for five years earning the rank of Captain. After serving in Northern California and Nome, Alaska, he returned to school for his MBA at the University of Southern California.
Dave’s career has included working for NCR in Rancho Bernardo as Materials Manager; owning K and B Egg Ranch for 10 years; and as a licensed building contractor in home construction and remodeling. After a “really rewarding” two years with Habitat for Humanity in Fitchburg, MA, San Diego and San Bernardino, CA, Dave was and is ready for a new avocation/adventure to supplement his income.
Attracted to Religious Science by Rev Terry Cole-Whittaker in 1976, Dave later served as Board Treasurer at the Vista Church in the later 70s and 80s, and joined Seaside Center for Spiritual Living in 1996. He graduated as a Religious Science Practitioner in 2004.
Dave, an avid reader, helped developed and then managed our wonderful Seaside Bookstore from 2003 through 2015. He continues to volunteer in the Bookstore and also volunteers as a teaching assistant with Foundations classes and answers the Seaside office phones, as needed.
Dave lives in Carlsbad near his daughter, Erin, and his young grandson, Wyatt, with whom he gardens. His daughter, Ashley, lives in Hawaii.
“Science of Mind has had a major impact on my life. I am so grateful to be a Religious Science Practitioner and to serve Seaside,” Dave said.
