David grew up in Madison, SD, the son of Jud Bergan, O.D. and the oldest of three boys. After high school, he completed a computer programming degree at Augustana College, graduating with honors in 2002. Later that year, he became the administrator and first full-time employee for Optilegra (then called Dakota Eye Care).
