David has been honing his skills in Events Sustainability since the first Green Sports Alliance Summit, in 2011, in which he played an integral role through 2016.
After branching out as an independent consultant, he has continued to gain experience in sustainable event management as both a paid contractor and volunteer at various events, including music festivals, marathons, and large corporate events.
The foundation of his knowledge and experience, however, comes from his 5 years as Membership Director of the Green Sports Alliance, a role that had him learning from and advising sports stadium and arena operators, as well as event managers for marathons and other stand-alone events, on the full spectrum of sustainable management.
David became extremely well-versed around issues and best practices in waste/recycling/composting, water conservation, energy efficiency, food and beverage service, transportation, sourcing/procurement, staff training, internal/external messaging, et. al.
Most recently, he served in perhaps his most in-depth role yet, creating the comprehensive Sustainability Strategy and writing the Sustainability Impact Report as well as the Legacy Playbook & Toolkit for the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games, in concert with the 2018 USA Games Organizing Committee and project partner Tim Reeve.
