On a more personal note, David is a lifelong resident of Raleigh with a variety of interests and hobbies. A former self-proclaimed adventurer, albeit in a previous life, David has saddled up on a hodge-podge of activities such as spending days hiking to, then hiking on the Great Wall; a few too many bicycle pedal rotations from the tip of Tennessee to Wrightsville Beach, NC (it was high tide which shortened the distance); a 2-block and 2-flights of stairs chase catching a robber in downtown Raleigh (only later to learn that he was armed!); a well-planned 3-day hike on the north face of the Grand Canyon, but apparently with the wrong map (his buddy’s fault); and a one-time Presidential motorcade driver evidently receiving a rather high level of security clearance… Those days have long passed, but the stories seem to continue getting better according to his family and friends. He and his wife, Anne, have been married for over 20 years (although they also attended high school together many years prior). Together, they have one daughter and enjoy outings to the beach.
