Bachelor of Architecture, Temple University

David has over three decades of professional architectural experience, both in the United States and Asia in a wide array of building types including high-level designs for residential, commercial, schools, churches, and master planning projects. Prior to joining Hickok Cole, his entrepreneurial spirit led to the founding of his own practice, Wahl Architects, which specialized in residential work in Jakarta and Bali, Indonesia, Canada, and the DC metro area. This experience makes him a natural lead for our most exciting mixed-use projects, as well as efforts to bring our work that matters mantra to new and emerging markets.

David enjoys acting as an internal client advocate, working on behalf of our teams to ensure projects are successful from a design, financial, and community impact perspective. In addition to serving as Director of Project Operations—through which he spearheaded the reorganization and streamlining of internal project management processes—he is an active participant in the firm’s mentorship program, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and a registered architect in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia.
