David grew up skiing in the White Mountains and started climbing at a summer camp just north of Mt. Washington when he was 16. Those first couple of years solidified climbing as a lifetime passion. From 1996-2000 he served in the US Marines and spent the better part of those years traveling the globe (18 countries). After returning to civilian life he moved to North Conway to focus on climbing and was hired in 2004 as a Rock and Ice Instructor. Since then Dave has taken numerous AMGA courses, most recently attaining a AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Certification. He has completed a Level 3 AIARE avalanche course, is a Level 2 Course Leader, holds a valid Wilderness First Responder and is a member of the “A” team of Mountain Rescue Service. When Dave isn’t out climbing or guiding people on the cliffs, he enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, and sampling new micro-brews. He lives in Conway, NH with his wife Michelle and son Alex.
