David always wanted to be "in." He and Scott Scanlon spent hours trying to be cool enough, and for David it worked, but Scott was left behind. During his senior year, between taking a double load to graduate with the gang, Donna, being the school DJ, and trying to have a social life, he and Scott grew apart. When Scott shot himself it was a huge blow and a source of immense guilt at the state the friendship ended in. After his father Mel and Kelly's mom Jackie married and had a child Erin, David was fully part of the gang. But it wasn't enough. Whether it be the college radio station, a music deal, or the Peach Pit After Dark, he tried too hard and tends to push people away when he is in trouble. Donna is a perfect example. When he was in serious danger, of all people, Dylan came to his aid. He kicked his drug habit, managed to avoid becoming an alchoholic, but the club did poorly under his management, he did discover he had a mild form of the depression his mother suffers from and treating that has helped. He is writing songs and his career seems to be on the up and up, but who knows what will happen with his love life. He continued to work for the Peach Pit doing his radio show, after Sofie was Gina, and after Gina was Camille, but in the end, he married Donna.
