Coming from a soccer playing family, David has been playing soccer since 4-years old. As a teenager he played for Clifton High School’s varsity team, which won the State Championship in 1994 with a 22-0-1 record and was ranked 3rd nationally. David was First Team All-State and received a full scholarship to play for The College of Saint Joseph.

His college success ultimately translated into successful professional and semi-professional soccer stints. Since hanging up his boots, David also coached soccer and have been a scout and professional soccer trainer for various schools and academies.

David also has a background in Finance and Business, as well as Marketing. He worked as International Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley and Smith Barney, as well as Business Development Manager at CBS. He also has extensive experience in Talent Management and consults for top Entertainment Companies in NYC.

One of David’s biggest highlights was being part of the organizing committee for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. He was
part of the media team stationed in Cape Town, South Africa. Upon returning to the US, he established Just Live Soccer.

He was also an American liaison for Major League Soccer (MLS) and Soccer United Marketing (SUM) to any Latin American international soccer team that played in the United States.

David is also very fortunate to have survived his evacuation from Tower Two during the tragic 9/11 attack, inspiring him to share his story throughout the nation. He regularly speaks to various audiences about his survival and how he has used soccer to help cope with the aftermath.

Currently, he manages the Innovate to Grow grant from US Soccer for New Jersey Youth Soccer, leading the way for the grassroots initiative and helping make soccer the preeminent youth sport in New Jersey. David is also an ABM Strategist for Propensity and an Equity Advisor for Sports Tech Startups: Conquer and Cocaptain.

He is also an ambassador for Soccer Resilience and the Forgotten Dogs Foundation and serves on the Advisory Council for GAIT Therapeutic Center.
