Dave brings a rich history of accolades and accomplishment to his work, having excelled in the trenches of sales, business and life as a true competitor. He is a nine-time Texas state champion in cross-country, swimming, track, and basketball, and a two-time national champion in cross country and basketball. Following a record-breaking season, he was awarded “Athlete of the Year” for the entire state of Texas. At Trinity University in Chicago, Dave was an All-American volleyball player who took his team to their first-ever national championship.
