David has worked in sustainable aquaculture for the past 9 years, focusing on the best practices to expand the commercial aquaculture industry in socially and ecologically responsible ways.

GreenWave works to replicate and scale regenerative ocean farming–a zero-input, polyculture seaweed and shellfish farming model that breathes life back into our oceans. By leveraging a mix of farmer-forward training and support, climate subsidies, and market development, GreenWave partners with coastal communities across North America to create a blue economy that ensures we can all make a living on a living planet. GreenWave’s goal is to train and support 10,000 farmers by 2030 to catalyze the planting of regenerative ocean crops and yield meaningful economic and climate impacts. GreenWave has been featured in 60 Minutes, CNN, the BBC, The New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, and Time Magazine, and is the winner of the 2021 Curt Bergfors Food Planet Prize.
