Dave is an engineer living and working in Katy, TX. He attended high school in New York where he ran cross country and track and began swimming as a way to recover between seasons. He found he had a real passion for distance swimming and started swimming competitively in 2004. He began entering triathlons after college when he moved to Michigan for work in 2011. He greatly enjoyed swimming in Lake Michigan for training and for recreation. A trip to Mackinac Island in the fall of 2011 made a great impression on him and was inspired by the bridge and the beauty of the area. It has been 5 years since he has lived in Michigan and is very excited to return for the Mighty Mac Swim and to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.
