Bridges Out of Poverty

David is a serial entrepreneur and philanthropist driven to create positive change in the world around him.  An early riser, David's passion for his family, his company and its employees and his love of exploring Northern Nevada are what get him out of bed every morning.  On weekends, he can often be found with his best friend and wife Susan cycling somewhere on the Tahoe-Pyramid Bike Trails.

Always happy to roll up his sleeves, David has helped build churches in Mexico, coordinated relief efforts after hurricane Katrina, been a house-parent at a Christian Children’s Home for abused/troubled kids and through one of his favorite Rotary projects has helped to provide clean water to villagers in Gondar, Ethiopia. 

David challenges himself and those around him to pursue excellence and balance in both life and work. He is a proud past-president of the Reno Central Rotary Club, a wicked competitor at Backgammon and corn-hole and a total marshmallow when it comes to babies, puppies and kids.

David became involved with the Bridges Out of Poverty program after interviewing many of the Reno-Sparks non-profit leaders to “find an area of greatest need”, for an Area 8 joint Rotary project for the 2016-17 Rotary year.  Since then he has worked with his fellow Rotarians, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and the Reno Housing Authority to advance the Bridges Out of Poverty program, to help make a positive change for families living in poverty in the Reno/Sparks area.
