Dave joined the North Santiam School District in 2009 as Head Custodian at SHS, and later moved to the Assistant Facilities Director position before becoming Director of Facilities in 2020.  He received an AS degree in mechanical design from CCC in 1983.  Prior to his employment at NSSD he worked at Philips Products in Stayton for over 26 years as a lead person, supervisor, field service technician, and service manager.
