David BransonDavid Branson

Seashore Operations Manager
Activity Coordinator

After battling the disease of addiction for the greater part of two decades, Dave’s life ultimately unraveled, leaving him homeless, with nothing but the clothes upon his back. It was in 2001 and as fate would have it, he stumbled upon Charle St. First Step House, located in Costa Mesa, California. By taking action in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, coupled with the willingness to turn his life around, Dave now has a life he never imagined possible. As an active member of A.A. and a volunteer committeeman at Charle Street, he is now driven by a passion to share his experience, strength and hope to help other alcoholics and addicts achieve sobriety and to help them maintain a better lifestyle. Dave brings over 14 years of service in the recovery field to Hotel California by the Sea.
