Coach David joined Bounce in March 2022, shortly after welcoming his newborn son, Killian with his partner, Tammy.
David initially acquired a degree in Liberal Arts – starting his career as an elementary school teacher, working with Kindergardneners while simultaneously studying child development.
During a break from teaching, David worked for Jewish Family Services – planning and implementing the Holocaust Survivor Program for two years, where he provided critical tools to help survivors and their families.
Making a welcome return to the education sector, David joined Bounce to combine his passion of working with children with his love of sports and making a positive impact on our youth.
When David isn’t changing diapers, he enjoys running, going to live music concerts and riding his collection of classic motorcycles.
