He is also a veteran of the United States Marine Corps where he served on active duty from 1992 to 1997. In 2004 David joined the 1st Battalion, 23rd Marines, a Houston-based Marine Corps Infantry Battalion for service in Al Anbar, Iraq. David served with an active duty counterintelligence unit and earned various commendations including the Global War on Terrorism Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and the Combat Action Ribbon.

During law school David served as an account executive with an advertising/public relations agency.

He took a brief respite from the practice of law during his overseas deployment, but after his return he joined another Houston firm to continue his practice.


David is a firm believer in the FairTax and is looking forward to managing the organization towards successful passage of the FairTax and repeal of the 16th Amendment.
