Dave has been helping students and teachers use technology effectively for over 25 years.  Dave comes to Academy of Our Lady of Peace from Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he was the Director of Technology at Rio Grande School.  Dave’s experience includes working at Laurel School where he was a technology coordinator, math teacher, network administrator, advisor, and coach, and Columbus School for Girls, where he was Director of Technology.  Dave is thrilled to once again be working at a girls school, and especially at OLP, where academics, faith, and service to the community are central tenants of the mission.

Dave has been a part of several projects  with Habitat of Humanity, and most recently traveled to Ciudad, Juarez, Mexico last February for a home building project with St. Bede’s Episcopal Church in Santa Fe and Missions Ministries, which is based in Colorado.  Dave also enjoys cycling, swimming, scuba, golf, and is looking forward to exploring San Diego and southern California.
