David finds it very fulfilling to help sustain and grow an organization that seems to be onto something new in the world of international development—the idea of intellectual philanthropy, the giving of professional knowledge, virtually from corporate volunteers to entrepreneurs. David brings 20 years of international business, nonprofit and government experience to PFS, most recently as a director of Hunger-Free Minnesota. A graduate of Princeton University and the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, he also served in various roles over 14+ years with Cargill and worked for the US Senate Agriculture Committee and US Senator Richard Lugar. David is clearly a global citizen—he has lived and worked abroad multiple times, speaks Portuguese, Spanish (and a little Italian), and is somewhat of a current events junkie. And he is clearly passionate about making the world a better place. First and foremost, though, he’s a dad. Being there for his children, Tess and Wyatt, along with his wife Aimée, and being a good role model for them. In the future, David imagines a second career running an educational travel business, and he wouldn’t mind another role in government as well.
