“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” – Frank Lloyd Wright
I am an architect that followed Wright’s words beyond architecture to my family roots in agriculture and aquaculture. I see urban agriculture as a way to combine my passion and skills between these fields while working to elevate the presence, performance and influence of nature within built environments, watersheds and regional food systems.
I currently work at MidPen Housing as GIS Specialist where my expertise in architecture, agriculture, planning and sustainability have been valuable in developing affordable housing. Meanwhile, as Greywater Action Level 2 Installer and graduate of the UC Santa Cruz Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems, I perform freelance organic gardening and design work that focuses on greywater irrigation systems.
Most recently, I’ve launched California Clips, affordable water saving clips made in CA that anyone can use to retrofit toilets to recover up to a gallon per flush with no loss in flushing power. Over 1200 toilets have been retrofitted to date and are now recovering over 1 million gallons of excess toilet bowl refill water every year . Please email me for a free sample.
David grew up in South Carolina and earned a B.S. (2010) and M.S. (2012) in civil engineering from Clemson University. His master’s research involved greywater treatment and reuse, which is how he learned about Greywater Action. David now works as a Project Engineer with a consulting firm in Charleston, SC, and is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE). His experience is primarily in municipal water/wastewater infrastructure. He is also an Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP) and is passionate about sustainability.
David has some construction experience acquired through mission trips and service projects; however, he is not a licensed contractor. David would love to talk with you about greywater (or water sustainability in general) and brainstorm what might be appropriate for your home/project. The best way to reach him is by email.
Note: As of September 16, 2014, this is the current legal status of greywater in SC (according to an SCDHEC official): “Greywater is treated the same as wastewater for the purposes of disposal. Greywater could be used inside a home for things like flushing toilets (if consistent with local building and standard plumbing codes), but if discharged is treated as wastewater (needing either connection to a sanitary sewer or a septic system).” Many people have asked about this so I am posting it here for easy reference. But please don’t let it discourage you from talking to me! Talking about greywater is still legal. 🙂
