David was born and raised in Memphis, TN. A two time graduate of University of Tennessee at Martin, he received his first degree in 1991 in Business Administration and the second in 1994 with a degree in Fitness Management. While at UTM he met his wife Melissa. After marriage David and Melissa followed a job opportunity for him in the rehabilitation industry to South Florida where they lived for 5 years. However, soon after the birth of their only child Kaylor in 1999, they returned to the Gallatin area to be near family. For the next 7 years God used some unique jobs to help David find out exactly the plan God had for him. Finally, in 2006 David listened to what God was telling him and returned to his true love and passion of fitness. He came on board when the Family Ministry Center opened in October 2007 and began working part time at night on the fitness floor. Soon afterwards he assumed the position of Fitness Director for the Family Ministry Center.
