OWNER OF NEVINS & ASSOCIATES
WHILE WORKING WITH THE BALtimore Symphony Orchestra, David Nevins was encouraged by friends and associates to start his own marketing company. This year, Nevins & Associates celebrates its 25th annniversary.
Active in Maryland's educational, civic and business community, Nevins is a member of the University System of Maryland Board of Regents.
Nevins, 53, lives with his two children, Freddi, 16, and Jake, 13, in Pikesville. In his free time, he says, he enjoys playing golf and watching his kids play tennis.
A car for my 16-year-old daughter, Freddi, the new driver in the house
"I want something for her that is not new and not old. Very safe, with airbags everywhere."
A summer European cruise
"When you're out on the ocean, there is no signal coming in, so my Blackberry usually won't work."
A bit more motivation to use my gym membership
"I still need to lose a few pounds, but it is a difficult decision for me to choose between going to the gym or having a dinner meeting out."
A new golf driver
"With golf season upon us, I would like to have a new golf driver. Straighter. 20 yards further. But, left-handed."
A tennis match with Roger Federer for my son, Jake, as a bar mitzvah gift
"I've already had lunch and played golf with my childhood sports hero, Arnold Palmer, so I'd like to make my son's dream come true."
