Dave (and his wife Sue) are the co-founders and co-directors of the Center for Ecological Living and Learning (CELL) – a program that offers life-changing sustainability education programs for people who believe that they can make a difference in the world: students who would like to play an active role in creating long-term solutions to problems facing our local and global communities and environment.

Our desire to form CELL arose from a yearning to see a global mobilization toward systemic solutions to our planet’s problems and our work in Africa – where we saw the successes and failures of various environmental and development programs. Most importantly we learned what can happen when people are inspired to imagine creative possibilities. Dave’s background includes a doctorate in environmental education, college teaching experience, and CEO experience leading several non profit organizations.
