David worked as a Certified Professional Guardian for 18 years, helping to protect the legal, social, and medical interests of clients who required “decisional support” due to cognitive or physical limitations that impeded their ability to exercise these rights alone. Having worked alongside many people who were debilitated by symptoms of mental illness, he shares that, “Finding an organization focused on providing a dignified employment for people living with mental health concerns was refreshing and heartwarming.” David owns two companies related to decorative lights: LiteClipStrip, which manufactures installation systems for commercial and residential Christmas lighting systems, and Silvaire Lighting, a commercial Christmas lighting installation and service company. He is very active with a bluegrass band, the Weavils – performing regularly at music festivals, corporate functions and weddings, and he’s a huge Seattle Storm fan.
