David began his career in public service with the Appalachian Coal Country Team, serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteer In Service To America) for the Friends of the Cheat in Preston County, WV. Upon completing his term as a VISTA, he joined the environmental research group SkyTruth in 2012 to raise awareness about global conservation issues through the use of satellite imagery and digital mapping. At SkyTruth, David managed research and public relations on global conservation issues from mapping mining in North America to tracking oil spills and overfishing around the world. In February 2017, David left SkyTruth to take a more direct role in shaping policy in the Mountain State, lobbying West Virginia's 83rd Legislature on issues related to the environment and local food. 

In Jefferson and Berkeley counties, David is active in a wide range of civic and community organizations. In addition to the Eastern Panhandle Young Democrats, he sits on the board of the Rotary Club of Shepherdstown and works to alleviate poverty in Jefferson County through the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Shepherdstown. Manthos is a member of the Berkeley and Jefferson County Democratic Associations, and in May, was appointed to the board of the Jefferson County Development Authority by a unanimous vote of the Jefferson County Commission.

David lives in Charles Town with his wife Vaida and enjoys travel, reading, writing, photography, cycling, and finding new ways to use technology to improve society.
