He is past President of the Korean American Bar Association of Washington, and a Fellow of the Washington Leadership Institute. While born in Seoul and extremely proud of his Korean heritage, David has spent most of his life in the Seattle area, where he currently lives with his wife and two young daughters and is an avid supporter of all Seattle sports teams.
