His strong technical and design background has allowed him to successfully manage projects through all phases from early schematics and site feasibility studies, through final construction stages. In his short time with OKW, Dave has contributed to retail projects at Chatham Market, the Lake Business Center in Munster IN, as well as several Planet Fitness build-outs in and around Chicago.In his free time, Dave enjoys going to neighborhood parks and restaurants with his wife and 2 kids, is a sports enthusiast (particularly if the Buckeye State is involved) and has been playing various forms of percussion for nearly 20 years.
