David is the founder of Edgewater Pro Sports Financial, an independent financial management company, whose goal is to provide qualified and timely financial advice and planning that is unique to the individual and their distinctive needs. 

His money management expertise is utilized on behalf of his clientele on a daily basis, through advising individuals and businesses on money management decisions, leadership, and continuing business and company structure issues. David’s leadership qualities and strong ideas have given him exposure to some of the world’s most successful people and companies.

Since 1992, David has been directly involved in financial management for individuals, public and privately-held companies, foundations, and local governments. This experience allows a very broad-based perspective for Edgewater Pro Sports Financial clients.

David is a registered player financial advisor with the National Football League Players Association. This distinction is only given to select financial advisors after completing a rigorous application process. We are very proud of our certification and affiliation with the NFLPA.

David is often invited to speak to groups regarding the subjects of leadership, faith and personal financial planning. He has appeared on Money Matters, a nationally syndicated radio broadcast, and WMBI’s Midday Chicago. Northeast Ohio radio and television appearances include: WCRF’s Midday Connection & Morning Show, News Channel 5’s The Morning Exchange and Fox 8’s That’s Life. David has written numerous articles for national publications including Sports Spectrum magazine.

David spent ten years as a Staff Sergent in the United States Army and the National Guard, becoming a decorated soldier and demolitions expert. He was recognized for his leadership qualities and physical fitness. As David often says, “There is nothing like the camaraderie of a group of soldiers working together to achieve a worthy and righteous goal.”

“If you know a soldier, the family of a soldier, or are aware of a soldier living in your neighborhood, please take the time to thank them for the sacrifice they are making on our behalf. The cost of freedom continues to be one of the highest priced commodities there is, and there are people willing to pay the price for us. May God bless them and their families that they would come back home to us safely.”

David lives in Vermilion, Ohio, with his wife, LaVonne, son Josh and two dogs, Lydia and Autumn.  David’s oldest son Jacob is a graduate of Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, Illinois and currently lives in Chicago.

David is an avid golfer and runner. He loves to exercise, ski, scuba dive, shoot, and hike in the mountains of the western United States.  He developed a strong love of the outdoors while in the army that has only grown stronger over time.  David and LaVonne have been to the Amazon jungle several times helping facilitate fresh water wells for indigenous tribes that live deep in the jungle and have no access to fresh water.
