While FLG has a well-deserved reputation for being a firm of CFO smoke-jumpers and EMTs, one of us actually is one. In addition to his CFO activities, David is a Sea Ranch volunteer firefighter/EMT and a member of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team.
David earned a BS in Mathematics (Summa Cum Laude) from Arizona State University an MBA from the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
