He pursued post-graduate studies at Harvard and the University of California at Los Angeles. After eight years employed as the Art & Design Coordinator at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, David opted for the quiet life ...in AIKEN.

He currently serves on the boards of the Community Medical Clinic of AIken County, the Advisory Council for the University of South Carolina's Etherredge Center, and on the Board of Governors for Aiken's private Green Boundary Club.

He has participated with the Aiken Driving Club and the Aiken Board of Realtors, where he has served as an officer and received recognition for his extraordinary sales. David has served as co-chair of the Green Boundary Club Winter Ball, the Green Boundary Club Winter Auction, the Aiken SPCA Easter Parade, the SPCA-Free Medical Clinic Annual House-&-Barn Tour and as Chairman of the Katydid Combined Driving Event Sunday Brunch and numerous other charity events in Aiken.  In 2012, he raised community funds dancing the hula with Connie Young in Aiken's gala fundraiser: "Dancing With the Stars."

His current pet-project is the annual "Dinner with Friends,' which raises funds for the Community Medical Clinic.

When he is not setting new records in the local real estate market, David can be found on his small farm in Aiken's historic district.

About Aiken

Aiken is a discovery, a treasure, a rare find that fills a special need. Atop pine-scented sand hills in western South Carolina, Aiken has always attracted interest among sportsmen and health-conscious visitors.

In the 1700’s and early 1800’s, Aiken was the destination of choice for Charleston residents who sought to escape the humid heat of the coast in the summer. For many decades this tiny village was the refuge for wealthy residents of Charleston.

When Charleston merchants built the world’s first commercial railroad, our town was a regular stop on that line. This commercial boost led to the town’s incorporation in the 1830’s.

In the late 1800’s, Aiken status as a health destination increased. Grand hotels and country inns were built to house the many guests who came to recuperate from respitory diseases. Doctors across the nation ‘prescribed’ Aiken for its clean piney air and gentle climate.

From this interest in health grew a Winter Colony of America’s finest families whose interest in Aiken grew broader and deeper into the 20th Century. By the Roaring ‘20’s, anyone wanting to ‘be someone’ in America found a way to stay the winter in Aiken. Fox hunting, shooting, carriage driving, thoroughbred racing, polo and golf became mainstays of the Winter Season.

From this Winter Colony grew a rich heritage of fine homes, equestrian estates, and sporting clubs, including golf, polo, hunting, court tennis, lawn tennis, and more. The passions that grew for this charming town have been passed down for generations.

Today, Aiken thrives with a successful branch of the University of South Carolina, a technical college, a smart downtown for shopping and dining, and a sophisticated cultural and arts scene. Golf has become lavish in its offerings, and there are at least 30 polo fields in the area. Aiken continues to offer sport, health, and entertainment for the discriminating resident and visitor.
