David joined the WCCO team in April 2020, and shortly after spent several days and nights in the field covering the civil unrest and protests following the murder of George Floyd. He also covered the death of Daunte Wright and the subsequent criminal trial of former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter.
Before coming to the Twin Cities, David worked in Milwaukee and Las Vegas, where he covered several notable stories including the October 1 mass shooting on the Vegas Strip and political visits from President Barack Obama and candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
David grew up just outside New York City, went to college in Nashville, and interned at a television station in St. Louis before beginning his career, so he's no stranger to moving around the country.
One particularly fun fact: David is a "Jeopardy" champion! If you ever want to talk about trivia or sports or food or anything going on in your community, David would love to hear from you. You can reach him on Facebook and on Twitter.
If you know of a great story idea, please send it to him via email.
