Prior to 1995, David was an architect for the Department of the Navy's Facilities Engineering Command in San Diego where he planned and designed building renovations and additions for the military. His other responsibilities included selecting architecture firms contracting to perform services for the government, reviewing the work of those firms, and preparing interior design packages.
