David lost his ability to walk as a result of an accident in the surf off the coast of Redondo, CA in August of 1995. The result of the accident was a broken neck which damaged his spinal cord leaving him a C6 quadriplegic. Prior to his accident, David was a collegiate level tennis player and upon becoming paralyzed, doctors had little hope that he would ever walk again let alone play tennis. It was no surprise when, in rehab, David regained his love for tennis, learned of the opportunity to compete, and started to train again. With his hand taped to the racket, he set out to become the number one Quad Open player in the world.

At the moment, David is a full time wheelchair tennis player and travels all over the world. He plays 15-20 tournaments a year including the Grand Slam tennis events (US Open, Flushing Meadows and Australian Open, Melbourne). His next goal is to participate at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020 and to win 2 gold medals - both singles and doubles.
