David is focused full-time on planning and facilitating landowner burns, prep days, and training events, as well as using social media to tell the world what amazing things Butte PBAers are doing. David says, "I grew up in rural Mendocino county. I’m a volunteer firefighter for Butte County Fire company 24 Forest Ranch and the vice president of the Forest Ranch Community Association. I enjoy gardening and cooking. I love to go on trips with my wife and our eight year old son. Other hobbies include making biochar and working on my chainsaw skills!" David looks forward to being part of the positive culture shift around good fire in Butte County.
