As an Air Force Technical Instructor, he taught principles and fundamentals of electronics, HVAC and mechanical concepts, along with advanced troubleshooting skills utilizing schematics/structural resources. As a quality control specialist, attention to detail has become second nature. These skills and more have enabled a smooth transition into the home inspection industry.

As members of their local church, Dave and his wife Donna enjoy meeting new people while finding ways they can serve neighbors. They have a son a son, Micah and 2 furry 4-legged puppies.
