David Silva holds degrees from Georgetown University and the University of California – San Francisco. He has instructed at Georgetown and at the University of Virginia, where at the age of 21 he was the youngest instructor to teach courses at UVA.
At the age of 22 David became one of the youngest Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the history of the Bureau. He investigated white collar crimes and organized crime syndicates. He also undertook counterintelligence and espionage investigations. Among his successes are the prevention of transferring polar orbit satellite codes to Russia, and he foiled the attempt by a defense contractor leader to sell the entire Stealth bomber construction schematics to Russia. The latter case remains the largest potential economic loss prevented in the history of the United States -- $65 billion. David’s successes are chronicled in the book, Spy Versus Spy, by Ronald Kessler.
David has scholarly publications in constitutional law, tax law, and medicine. At present David is Vice President of Regional Compliance at Baylor Scott & White Health in Dallas. He oversees compliance at 49 hospitals and over 300 clinics throughout Texas. David works with leadership among physicians, nurses, and pharmacists to mitigate risks to patients, as well as to optimize healthcare delivery.
