David’s interest in constant learning and growth and a desire to be proud of the work he does are the reasons he chose a career in law.

He chose Davies for the opportunity “to work on substantive matters, and to learn from, and stand among the best.” Before law school, David worked as a legal assistant in the Department of Justice, within the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement’s Independent Assessment Process.

Whom have you learned the most from personally or professionally?

My dad. He showed me the importance of curiosity and skepticism. His emphasis on learning and thinking logically are two traits he has made me appreciate and that will be at the core of my career.

What skill would you like to learn?

To cook. Your meals are limited to your imagination (and ingredients). It makes healthy eating easier and it seems fun.

If you were not a lawyer, what career would you have chosen?

A professor. It provides the opportunity to continue learning, contribute to a field of knowledge and pass knowledge on to future generations.
