Originally from Orlando, Florida, David graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, with a B.A. in History and Political Science. He joined NAOP in March 2013 as Office and Membership Coordinator. Prior to that, he worked for CQ Roll Call (owned by the Economist Group) as Director of Circulation. There he oversaw subscriptions, printing, and distribution for three news publications, including Roll Call, the newspaper of record on Capitol Hill, and coordinated many long-term projects for the organization, including merging the databases of three companies acquired during his tenure there with Roll Call's database. Prior to working for CQ Roll Call, he held internships with Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, as well as with CNN.
