Davis is general contractor with more than 40 years of experience in construction, 20 years of those being on the Oregon Coast.

Davis has sat on the Lincoln City City Council before, but had to resign the post for change of address. The Lincoln City Charter states that anyone who no longer lives in the city ward from which a candidate ran for city council, that person is no longer legally allowed to serve as a councilor from that district.

Davis has served on the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce as a Board member, and also as president.

He has been involved with Angels Anonymous Inc. a nonprofit since its inception in the year of 1999, and is now serving as President.

In 2017 Davis was appointed to the Lincoln City Planning Commission but due to a change in residence he resigned.
