David is an Illinois-licensed, ABC-certified prosthetist/orthotist who has practiced for over twenty years, with a focus on pediatric orthotics. He attends a weekly pediatric orthopedic clinic where he sees patients with scoliosis, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, clubfoot, toe walking and other pediatric orthopedic issues. He has lectured both nationally and internationally on topics regarding pediatric orthotics.

David received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign and his orthotic and prosthetic training at Northwestern University in Chicago. He has trained, in person, with Dr. Manuel Rigo from Barcelona, Spain regarding concepts of the Rigo-Cheneau scoliosis brace, on two different occasions.

David was one of the co-authors of a paper that was presented at the 2016 Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America (POSNA) annual meeting regarding bracing for treating femur fractures on children ages 0-5, which was voted the best trauma paper presented at the conference. This same paper, titled Functional Bracing for Treatment of Pediatric Diaphyseal Femoral Fractures: An Alternative to Spica Casting?, won the AAOP 2019 Thranhardt Award which recognizes the top clinical research done in orthotics and prosthetics in a given year.
