Dave first came to Pok-O-MacCready in 1990 as a camper in the Pioneer Section. After seven summers as a camper, he worked as a counselor, section head, Assistant Director, and Director of Outdoor Education. Outside of Pok-O, Dave honed his skills as an educator, mentor, and wilderness trip leader by facilitating St. Lawrence University’s Adirondack Semester, teaching 150 courses for the National Outdoor Leadership School, and leading multi-week whitewater canoeing and backcountry skiing trips for Kroka Expeditions. Dave is happy to be back in the Adirondacks year round. He and his partner Tess fill their sparse free time reconnecting with this magical place by hiking winter 46ers and exploring local rivers in their packrafts.
