BACKGROUND
David grew up in the city of Carson, graduated from Carson High School and remained a resident until the age of 23. He now resides in Redondo Beach with his wife and is the father of two adult age children.

David holds a degree in History from California Polytechnic State University, Pomona. His professional career includes 24 years in the water business, all with Nestle Waters North America, aka Arrowhead. His last position with Nestle was Regional Warehouse Manager for Southern California. David changed direction and entered the automotive retail industry where he spent three years as the Pre‐Owned Sales Manager for Subaru Pacific in Hawthorne, CA.

David’s decision to join Green Hills Memorial Park centered around learning about the culture of the company where employees were treated respectfully and encouraged to make the opportunity to establish a career and not just hold a position.

THE GREEN HILLS COMMUNITY
David has been with Green Hills Memorial Park for a few years and has quickly added value to the customer experience. He recognizes the cemetery is the place where friends and family can return often to reflect on their loved one, so as an Advisor he can help ensure they have a special place to remember their loved one for a long time to come.

David enjoys the added opportunity working at Green Hills since he has several family members and friends at rest in the park. He recalls how much he appreciated the care and attention received during his time of need and is inspired to do the same for others.

OFF THE CLOCK
The many years of being an active basketball player has taken a toll on David physically so he now enjoys regular workouts, walking at the beach, watching his beloved Raiders and spending time with his family.

David has mentored two young men, now in their late 20’s, as a big brother since the age of 8. Not only is it fulfilling for him, he recognizes not everyone is fortunate to have a support system to aid in being successful. He accepts this responsibility with honor and dignity.

When schedules align for his family, often the Caribbean becomes the destination of choice.
