Originally from Ireland, David joins Wheeler Kearns Architects (WKA) for a one-year internship. He received a Bachelor of Architecture Honors degree and a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Technology degree from Dublin Institute of Technology in Ireland.

Before moving to Chicago, David worked as an Architectural Assistant in Ireland where he learned to prepare tender and planning permission packages, attend design meetings, coordinate with consultants, as well as assist with marketing materials and drawings.
