Extracurricular activities and Culture

From Detroit, Michigan, USA, David completed his Bachelors of Music in Double Bass Performance at Rice University in Houston, Texas in 2001. From a family of artists: his father, a bassist in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, his mother, a dance teacher and arts administrator, his eldest sister, a Broadway actress/musician, his youngest sister, an art teacher, and his wife, Jaimie, a ballet teacher and choreographer, arts and culture have always been infused in his life. He has performed with many world-class orchestras including the National Arts Center Orchestra, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

He moved to Valencia, Spain in 2006 as an original member of the Orquesta de la Comunitat Valenciana, under the direction of Lorin Maazel, and he continues to perform there. David and Jaimie have two children, Milo and Sylvie, who are in Mammolina Montessori. David joins the Mammolina team to help bring enriching and diverse extracurricular activities and events to the school.
