David is a brand expressionist. A business strategist. A storyteller. A graphic design craftsman. An idea generator. An iconsmith. A seasoned decision maker. A relationship builder. Some say dreamer; others, a problem solver. And most importantly, David is a coach to those he leads. He loves crafting creative solutions to business and communications problems — the bigger and more complex the challenge, the more exciting he finds it. He has spent his 20+ year career creating distinctive brands and communications for local, regional and global brands, including: Coast Casinos, DirectTV, Disney, Eat24, Exxon Mobil, Fair Trade USA, Geico, HP, Jack in the Box, Kaiser Permanente, Microsoft, Nike, Northrop Grumman, Reno Tahoe Nevada Tourism Board, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, Stanford University, The New School, Time Warner, WBros. and more.
Brand development, graphic design, typography, communication, business strategy, technology, food and wine, travel, his wife, his friends, architecture and interiors, and well designed shoes are most often what you will find him talking about (not necessarily in that order). And he uses his enthusiasm for a bon vivant creative existence, and his laser focused rationalization of the work on the table — to motivate and build confidence across his creative team, his clients and his vendors. It has been said that when you work with David, you come to believe that great work is simply inevitable.
