David has lived along the Canal in Lower Makefield Township for over thirty years. By erecting no fences on property lines, he and his hillside neighbors share an expansive view of what they feel is one of the finest stretches of the lower Canal. The continuous water, wildlife (especially the foxes, herons, and spring peepers), and undeveloped flood plain on the River side make it impossible not to love the Canal.
With degrees from Brown and Temple, for 35 years David was a software engineer. When relentless squeezing and off shoring caught up with him in May of 2013, David realized that not only would it be extremely challenging to find a satisfactory position at age 61, but his circumstances made that unnecessary. Uncompromising saving and having a spouse with a successful consulting business conspired to make early retirement possible.
David welcomes the opportunity to do more for the Canal than admire it and send regular donations to the Friends. his ability to analyze processes and procedures and to make suggestions for change will come in very handy.
