David grew up in Des Plaines, graduated Maine East High School in ’84 and Northern Illinois University with a Business degree in ’88. After graduating college David worked as a scrap trader supplying scrap iron and metal to steel mills and foundries throughout the United States and Canada. In August of ’00 David left the scrap industry and began his career in the mortgage business and has originated over a billion dollars of mortgages. In August of ’02, he and his partner opened Townstone Financial.
In August of ’05 David did the loan for Kevin Matthews on air partner Scott MacKay a.k.a “Mo Driver.” After the loan closed Scott invited David on his show to discuss how David helped him and his wife secure his mortgage. As soon as David went on air all the phone lines were jammed for over 30 minutes and thus began David’s radio career. David appeared regularly with Scott, Pete McMurray and Steve Dahl and hosted a three hour show on WGKG before the station changed format. David moved his show to AM 560 WIND four years ago and could be heard there every Saturday from 1 to 3 PM. David is also the mortgage expert for NBC 5 News since ‘09 and he can be seen answering viewers questions during his Ask The Mortgage Man segments.
