Born and raised in New York, David has been traveling since birth, literally. He visited Portugal before turning two and was on his first African safari at the age of 6. Travel and exploration continue to shape David into whom he is today.
After earning his degree in marketing from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, David began his professional career in the sports industry. He started at an entry level position at Madison Square Garden and spent six years working his way up the corporate ladder at The World’s Most Famous Arena. After a very successful six year stint in sports sales & marketing David resigned in December 2009 to join KAI, a family business that handles sales & marketing responsibilities in North America for their award winning collection of international travel brands.
In the 3+ years since David joined KAI, the company has realized substantial growth and has increased it's international presence to include 5 continents outside of North America. David oversees all sales activities and is a shareholder in KAI. Given his love for travel this new career is a perfect fit; you’re almost as likely to bump into him at a bar in Cape Town or Hong Kong as you are in New York. David’s visited more than 30 countries, highlighted by his 30+ visits to Africa!
