David has taught a variety of classes and currently is teaching Academic & Career planning at Purdue University. He has a passion for encouraging young people to find their niche and takes pride in being a small bridge on their pathway to success. David is a the advisor of two student organizations on campus, The Purdue Student Engineering Foundation and EYE to EYE a mentoring group for kids with learning differences.

Although born in Detroit, David is truly a local product and a professed “townie” having grown up in Lafayette. Occasionally, he will toss out his very loose associations with Eminem or Axl Rose for “ Street Cred” but very rarely does it come in handy on campus. David like to stays fit by drinking lots of coffee (loves it) and teaching Spin classes at a local gym. If you’re unlucky you just might hear him break into a song on your visit.
