David currently is a Senior Associate at the Carbon War Room, which he joined at its inception. The Carbon War Room is an initiative launched by Sir Richard Branson that focuses on finding viable and profitable business opportunities in reducing carbon emssions. David currently leads Carbon War Room’s Network Engagement team. In his role, David engages with external stakeholders to incubate roadmaps that accelerate the deployment of clean technology solutions.

David holds a Bachelors degree from Cornell University. It was at Cornell where David began to develop a passion for combining entrepreneurial spirit with helping the environment. David started a company that designed, built, and maintained green roofs specifically tailored for hotels. It was this experience that allowed him to see first hand that there does not have to be a choice between the economy and the environment. 

Outside of Carbon War Room, David serves on the boards of the William James Foundation and North American Council for Freight Efficiency. David also volunteers as a reading judge for the Unreasonable Institute and is the Vice President of the DC NetImpact Professional Chapter.
