Email Dave
I've been an educator for 30 years. Prior to joining CVA in 2012, I worked nationwide as a consultant both online and bricks & mortar programs. CVA's hybrid program is a perfect fit for me! For fun, I love scuba diving for the the experience of neutral buoyancy and photographing the amazing creatures. I enjoy word games, try to keep in shape, and watch movies, old and new, with my teenage kids.

I've been with Cyber Village Academy since the summer of 2001.  I enjoy the unique IT challenges that come with working at a public school.  It forces me to stretch my technical imagination.  Away from CVA, I like staying active.  Tennis, football, hiking are just a few of my favorite activities.  I've gotten the taste of being a European traveler and see many more visits in my future.
