David S. Fallis, a member of The Post’s investigations unit, won the 2004 Heywood Broun Award for his series about deplorable conditions in Virginia’s assisted-living facilities. In 2002, he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Goldsmith Award for a report on shootings and in-custody deaths at the hands of police in Prince George’s County.

He also has investigated trouble within the District’s school system, the ties between politicians and developers in Loudoun County, and improper spending by D.C. government. Before David joined The Post in 1999, he wrote and edited for the Tulsa World, where his investigative work exposed the courts’ failure to remove chronic drunken drivers from Oklahoma roads.

David is a part-time faculty member at George Washington University, where he teaches investigative reporting. He holds a degree from the University of Oklahoma and lives in the D.C. area with his wife and two children.
