David comes from a military family and lived overseas for most of his childhood. After graduating from high school, David enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, where he worked in cyber operations until 2011. In 2012, David matriculated at Amherst College, where he studied political science, concentrating in public policy and institutional development. David believes that when it comes to educational opportunities, knowing is half the battle, and that many veterans do not realize the breadth of opportunity available to them. He wants every veteran to be able to realize their potential and lead their best possible life.
