Dave Ronn

Montana Farm & Ranch Director

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures

Dave Ronn was born and raised in Austin, Texas, and although he’s spent a few years abroad, he still calls Austin home. Here, you can find him playing guitar, enjoying a game of Ultimate Frisbee, doing improv or practicing a foreign language. For the past couple of years, Dave re-engaged in his past career in software development before deciding to return to the field for another season with VISIONS!

With a degree in economics from Brandeis University, Dave has worked as a solar panel analyst, software developer and English teacher. He also worked for a theater-based education program that helps first graders learn how to resolve problems. He believes strongly in the importance of serving others, a value he put into practice when he volunteered at a refugee camp in Calais, France.

Dave first experienced VISIONS when he participated in the Alaska program as a teenager in 2006. He has led and directed VISIONS programs in Peru and Guadeloupe from 2016 – 2019. And he keeps coming back to help teenagers discover the importance of seeing the world and learning about other cultures—and getting their hands dirty in the process! Dave is excited to embark on a new experience with VISIONS Montana Farm & Ranch, where he will be joined by his dedicated leader team.
