David Van Meter, M.S.Acc., Ph.D.

David Van Meter - Van Meter & Van Meter LLC, Little Falls, NY.

After growing up in Las Vegas, David served his country as an Army intelligence officer with the 101st Airborne Division, and then earned a M.S. in Accountancy from SUNY-IT and a Ph.D. in History from Boston University while choosing to settle in Little Falls, New York, to raise his six children in a friendly, small town environment. As an entrepreneur who founded Laurion Publishing in 1989, David brings to the company a broad base of experience in developing reference books and educational and entertainment software for niche markets. He also currently serves as a partner in Van Meter & Van Meter, LLC

David believes strongly in community development, and at one point he took several years off to serve as a VISTA Volunteer in the inner city of Utica where he helped found a hospice for terminally-ill AIDS victims. Lately his community involvement has been much less dramatic, ranging from helping run the Little League concessions to teaching Sunday School, and he has served on numerous civic, faith-based and municipal boards to include the Abraham House, the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts and the City of Little Falls Planning Board. Dave's hobbies include running (he ran his first Boilermaker 15K race in 2010) and bicycling, weight-lifting, and classic role-playing and strategy games. View David's Resume.
