David grew up near Daytona Beach, surfing, skateboarding, racing cars, and playing punk rock. He started a construction job at 15 and was a licensed contractor by the time he was 19. A family friend persuaded him to apply for an architecture position, and he quickly found his north star. He worked his way through architecture school, eventually being tapped to teach design studio classes and develop research while still a graduate student.
David built his career with a passion for design process, strategy, and research. He relishes discovering, and then realizing, a client’s brand, vision, and values. His approach is holistic, finding new ways to impact our communities and using design as the common ground that ties to the broader social purpose.
