A native of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, David joined McALPINE after completing his architecture degree from Auburn University in 1998 and became a partner in 2013. His projects incorporate traditional styles and details with modern needs, leaving his clients with an “inheritable” McALPINE house. Notably, recent projects he designed have enlivened the pages of Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, and Coastal Living. He loves the outdoors and has boundless energy and creativity. Truly passionate about houses, David and his wife Carol can be found teaching their three children, Isabella, Davis, and Lily how to use their hands as they build their own inheritable house on Lake Martin.

a good marriage, it
requires truth, humility,
forgiveness, and love.”
