In December 2014, Dave accepted the full-time Hotel Management faculty position at St. Philip's College.   He says he cannot express how excited he is to spend summers in Maine (away from the Texas heat), honing his culinary skills and practicing what he preaches in his Food and Beverage Cost Control class.  In his freetime, Dave is a singer, a marathon runner and serves on a variety of community association boards and committees.  He sold his very popular mini cheesecakes and raised funds for the San Antonio Riverwalk earning the title of Prince of the San Antonio Riverwalk in both 2015 and 2016.  And you can bet those cheesecakes will make multiple appearances at AIO this summer!  In May 2017, Dave was recognized by VisitSanAntonio as the San Antonio Certified Tourism Ambassador of the Year.
