Dave is responsible for coordinating K-12 programs at CSI.  It is his goal to make the work of CSI researchers and scientists relevant to middle and high school students.  Dave is interested in providing exciting, hands-on opportunities for students to experience science, math, engineering, art and technology outside of their classrooms.

Along with coordinating the K-12 program, he is also a member of the CSI Underwater Production Team and assists John McCord in sharing the work and mission of CSI with interested parties.

Dave prefers to spend his time in or around the waters of the Outer Banks surfing, fishing or diving.
