David was born and raised in rural Minnesota. After attending
college at the University of Minnesota, he lived in San Francisco
for eight years and then Los Angeles for ten years.

David enjoyed an 18 year career with the Marriott Corporation,

where he acted as General Manager of Executive Dining at
the International Headquarters of the Walt Disney Corporation,
located in Burbank, California. As such, he was responsible
for serving many of Hollywood's biggest stars.

After parting ways with the Marriott Corporation, David started

a network marketing business distributing nutritional supplements.
At its peak, his business had 22,000 distributors across the country.


In 2003 he opened Canada Drug Service in Naples, FL.

The company provided prescription medications shipped
directly to customers from a Licensed Canadian Pharmacy, at
greatly reduced prices. It grew to have 35 franchises across the US.

After extensive training, he became a full-time reverse mortgage professional in 2006. He acted as Bank of America’s Reverse Mortgage Loan Officer for Collier and Southern Lee County. Continually the top producer in the state of Florida, he also consistently ranked in Bank of America’s top ten reverse mortgage loan officers in the nation. He feels that his greatest accomplishments

are the hundreds of satisfied clients he has helped with reverse mortgages. Please see the testimonial pages for some of the
responses received from past clients.

​David has been a full-time resident of Naples, FL since 1998. 

He has two adult sons, for whom he wrote and published

'Thoughts From Dad' (available at Amazon).

*Always consult with your tax advisor, financial planning professional, or real estate professional.  Payment of property taxes, homeowner's insurance, HOA dues (if applicable) and general maintenance of the property is required.  Failure to abide by the terms and conditions of the loan could result in the loan being called due and payable, which could ultimately lead to foreclosure. Americans are living longer and without a good plan, you could outlive your money (tenure payments are guaranteed).  These materials are not from HUD or FHA and were not approved by HUD or a government agency.  Reverse Mortgages are neither endorsed nor approved by the federal government. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) provides certain insurance benefits for lenders and borrowers in connection with the lender’s reverse mortgage or HECM loans; the FHA does not make or originate loans. A reverse mortgage is a home loan, not a government benefit.
