David’s tenure with Northwestern Mutual began in 1996. He uses his wealth of knowledge and strong belief in building relationships to create holistic financial plans with each individual client in mind. In his goal to constantly provide expertise for those he serves, David earned four certifications (CLU®, ChFC®, CASL, and CFP®) that distinguish him as a knowledge resource in Nebraska. Along with his many certifications, he also attained an MBA from Regis College and a Masters of Science in Financial Planning (MSFS).


David and his wife, Megan, are the proud parents of two children who they enjoy visiting in Colorado and Florida. The Darlingtons are involved in the Lincoln community and enjoy giving back. They volunteer at McPhee Elementary School and are helping to fund and build a Habitat for Humanity home. In his spare time, David enjoys running (and sometimes swimming and biking). He completed a full Ironman triathlon in 2016 and is now working towards qualifying for the Boston Marathon.
