David’s interest in home building began when he was very young, sketching pictures of his dream home at the kitchen table while doing his homework. His early passion for architecture and design soon morphed into a love of home building.
His mother, who was an interior designer, started building custom homes in the late 70’s. His father, who had an engineering degree from the University of Minnesota, later joined her and they built custom homes in Indiana for 20-years. David spent his high school and college years working in the family business, learning the many aspects of the construction process, and watching his mother design homes. That’s when he fell in love with custom home building.
After a 10 year career in sales and marketing, David followed his passion and founded Denali Custom Homes, in 1998. He has always placed a high value on design and craftsmanship – custom home building is an art. Denali develops a one- of-a-kind product and offers a one-of-a-kind experience.
