David has been leading music and worship from the piano or by conducting the BCC choir since November, 2012. He is a native Minnesotan, born and raised in Golden Valley. He attended Gustavus Adolphus College, where he earned a BA in Music in piano, voice and choral music. Since then, he has free-lanced in a wide variety of venues, picking up an eclectic taste in music and learning songwriting along the way. Two of his four sons still live with him – none of the boys are quite sure if they’ll follow him into the family house painting business of David’s or pursue music with their talents.
