After working in several different employment fields including production, sales and air traffic control, David began his career in Code Enforcement in 2000 as a Certified Building and Site Inspector working for New Castle County, Delaware government. He served in this role for 4 years and was subsequently selected for promotion into management of the Plan Review and Inspections Divisions. He was tapped to manage special/high profile projects such as the 1M square foot Astra Zeneca World Headquarters and the New Castle County Public Safety Building in Wilmington, DE. While working for New Castle County, in 2006, David earned his Master Code Professional Certification; 6 years after entering the profession. He was the first individual to earn this level of distinction in the history of New Castle County Government and the 2nd in the entire State of Delaware.
After 10 years with New Castle County, he began service as the Deputy Chief Building Official in our nation’s capital of Washington, DC. He oversaw the daily operations for a staff of 70 inspectors and support staff. He served on the Technical Advisory Committee for the International Building Code for considered adoption by the District. David met weekly with stake holders to develop better solutions to complex code issues and to open the dialogue between designers, enforcers and builders.

During his time in DC, David earned the distinction as a Certified Building Department Evaluator from the International Accreditation Service, an ICC affiliate.
