Tawongan Since: 2000
David Aptaker was a camper, CIT, and TSL participant with Camp Tawonga before working on staff for five summers. He graduated from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service with an MA in Security Studies, and has returned back to the Bay Area. Tawonga’s 2006 & 2007 Peacemakers Weekend programs, and David’s BA in Peace and Conflict Studies at UC Berkeley both fueled his passion for the Middle East, leading to multiple long-term stays in Israel, including a recent stint as a research assistant at Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies. He currently works for LiveRamp as an information security specialist. David loves chess, good food, and basketball. He’s also a strong Super Smash Brothers player (N64 of course).
