David is partner at Martin Waymire, one of the state’s most aggressive public relations firms. His expertise is public policy, working with a number of the state’s largest corporations as well as non-profit clients on issues involving government agencies and political decision making, including ballot proposals. He’s a former reporter, and a Northwestern University graduate. David has won numerous awards as a reporter and in public relations, including the “Oscar” of public relations, the Silver Anvil (twice!).
His father taught him a love of fishing and the outdoors. When he moved to Michigan in 1980, he quickly embraced the outstanding and diverse fishing opportunities available. His father in law showed him how to fly fish, hooking him right in the heart.
When he’s not in his Lansing office, you can find David living up to his motto, “Nobody has more fun than Dave.” He relaxes with Marsha, his wife, and the family dogs and horses in Charlotte, skis with his daughter, Emma, in Colorado, rocks out at concerts across the country or casts a fly from his drift boat or in his waders…because, as Robert Traver famously said, “I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful.”
