David has been working in education for over 20 years, and has dedicated his professional career to promoting social equity through education at every level. He strongly believes that scientific literacy is one of the most effective ways to heal the world’s ills. David taught high school science and psychology for several years in public and charter schools in Boston and San Francisco, where he developed a rigorous psychology curriculum that was taught as a lab science class – the first of its kind. Following his time in the classroom, David co-founded Tutorpedia Foundation (TF), a Bay Area education nonprofit whose mission is to provide personalized academic support to deserving under-resourced students. He served on TF’s Board of Directors and as TF’s Program Director for five years. It was as Tutorpedia Foundation’s Program Director that David’s interest shifted towards teacher training and preparation, an area of need he is more able to focus on with EnCorps. David has served on advisory boards and consulted with San Francisco nonprofits such as the California Academy of Sciences and the San Francisco Yellow Bike Project. In his fleeting spare time, David plays guitar in various rock bands, is working on a book about Evolutionary Psychology, and has the tendency to disappear into incredibly remote sections of wilderness for days at a time. David has a BA in Psychology from Brown and a M.Ed. from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.
