Current Board Members

  • President – David Baker

David and his wife Emily found their home in Sleepy Hollow 7 years ago.  It wasn’t long before they realized they had 'hit the jackpot' by landing in such a terrific community and physical environment.  Entering his 5th year on the Homes Association board, David looks forward to supporting and seeing through many of the initiatives our all-volunteer board has led in recent years, including obtaining cellular service for the Hollow, safer streets, and expanded programs and social offerings at the community center. The Bakers have two boys enrolled at Hidden Valley, and for his day job David owns an architectural tile manufacturing firm. In his “free time” David loves spending time with his family, whether traveling or staying close to home (or these days, attending youth sports events). David also serves as the on-call handyman for his family, and frequently for the Sleepy Hollow Pool as well.

Chris has been on the SHHA board in the past as well as years of service as a past president of the Sleepy Hollow Tennis Club. You can usually find him on the courts, hiking in our hills or biking on the trails. He looks forward to actively serving our community again and helping to keep The Hollow a special place.

  • Director - Eric Wald
San Francisco native Eric Wald moved to Sleepy Hollow in October 2020 with his wife Abigail, sons Ezekiel and Arthur, and dog Berenice.

He’s also an avid cyclist and can often be found exploring the incredible trails in and around Sleepy Hollow. He’s new to the SHHA Board and eager to learn and contribute in any way he can.
