Dave is a sports and outdoor enthusiast. His hobbies include hiking, soccer, hunting, boating and coaching roller derby.
In his professional career, Dave works in telecommunications enjoying the industry challenges and embracing its growth. He recently completed a Masters program in Broadband Communications. When Dave is not working, he enjoys spending his time with his family and coaching roller derby.
Dave started coaching roller derby 4 years ago, in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada for the NWO Junior Honey Badgers. The following year, Dave moved into the role of line coaching their adult travel team (NWO WolfPack). After coaching both adults and juniors, Dave settled into the role of Head Coach and Athletic Director of the NWO Junior League, attributing much of his success to the assistance of fellow coaches along the way. His driving force has always been his daughter Maddison, who also plays for NWO Juniors.
Some of Dave's accomplishments include coaching skaters who have gone on to achieve national success on both the Canadian World and Olympic teams. Dave’s passion for roller derby and helping young skaters achieve their goals is what he finds most rewarding.
He is very excited to represent his region in western Canada and looks forward to developing new relationships and helping the JRDA grow its membership.
