David brings 20 years of experience in several different markets to his role at SGA, where he provides creative direction for commercial and higher-education commissions. He enjoys the diversity of his projects, which encompass master plans, university residences, and corporate offices. A key focal point of his work is sustainability, which David views as paramount. He recognizes that architecture can have a positive impact on the environment by incorporating the latest advances in energy efficiency.
David’s first hands-on experience in sustainable design came early in his career, at FXFowle (now FX Collaborative) in New York City, a firm that, like SGA, was an early architect of LEED-certified buildings. His career progressed at such other distinguished firms as Cetra Ruddy, where he concentrated on high-end residential, and where he worked with developers on supertall structures in the center of New York City.
SGA’s warm and welcoming atmosphere prompted him to join the firm in 2014, when he and his family moved to Boston. He also noted the firm’s leadership in technology, which he now applies to every project in his portfolio.
David earned a Master of Architecture from Syracuse University. Outside of the office, he likes to visit museums, galleries, and restaurants.
