Director since 2016
Seattle Children’s Autism Center. He has worked there since 2011, but also worked and volunteered at Seattle Children’s even before attending Seattle University for his graduate studies. That included a number of years volunteering at the Stanley Stamm Summer Camp in Wilkeson, Washington, which supports a week-long summer camp experience for medically fragile youth whom otherwise are unable to attend camp. David discovered his vocation when a younger family member was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and through his work at the Autism Center has learned from so many families that navigating services and supports is such an important part of path for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities; he’s very happy to be able to forward this initiative through The Arc of King County. David lives in Seattle with his wife, Sarah, and their cat, Lola. Having grown up in Seattle, they enjoy getting out in nature (not so much for Lola) in whatever ways the seasons offer and that also includes golfing and attending Sounders games.
