InfoA product of the rural Midwest, he learned the value of faith, family, and a strong work ethic at a young age. Dave was determined to get an education that would empower him to help others reach their economic potential.

Dave’s journey led him to Princeton Theological Seminary where he obtained a Masters in Divinity and then to American University where he earned a Ph.D. in Economics. That education has led him to a career serving the people of the Commonwealth.

In 1996, Dave and his wife Laura moved to Henrico and he began teaching economics and ethics at Randolph-Macon College. He has chaired the Economics and Business Department for the past 6 years.

Dave has been honored to serve the Commonwealth in numerous capacities, serving two governors on the Joint Advisory Board of Economists and serving on the Richmond Metropolitan Authority, the Great Aspirations Scholarship Program, and on the VACO OPEB Investment Board.

His economic expertise has also been recognized by his peers who elected him as president of the Virginia Association of Economists, and the governor also appointed him to the Virginia Board of Accountancy.

Dave is also regularly called upon various media outlets to offer insights into current economic issues and public policy issues of the day. As an active member in the Henrico Republican Party, he has been a consistent conservative voice in his community.

Dave has spoken on ethics and economics and worked with a diverse range of groups including most of the regional Rotary Clubs, many churches, businesses, academic institutions and political groups; the Asian Chamber, the Richmond Federal Reserve, and a host of business associations.
