In the spring of 1992, David graduated from Full Sail Center for the Recording Arts and started working as a pro audio sales consultant for Sam Ash Music, and moonlighting as a stagehand for an amphitheater in Camden, NJ. Seven years later he would begin his 17-year career with The National Geographic Society, Washington, D.C. supporting the audiovisual and information technology departments, and producing and engineering live events in National Geographic’s Grosvenor Auditorium.
In the Fall of 2017, David became the director of development for a nonprofit radio station in Cape May, New Jersey, WCFA 101.5 FM, and he also joined the independent concert promotion company, I.M.P., where he was assigned to manage digital signage and assist with front of house operations for The Anthem performance venue in Washington, DC. David has been an associate of WSDG-Walters-Storyk Design Group, a New York-based architectural acoustic consulting and media systems engineering design firm since 2009, and in the summer of 2018 will oversee the new WSDG office in Washington, D.C.
David has a strong interest in broadcast and recording studios, concert halls, entertainment venues, theaters and supper clubs, and tends to gravitate toward people who are passionate about these spaces, the technology integrated within, and the people who inhabit them.
David grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia near Little Timber Creek in New Jersey. He now resides in Washington, D.C. and Cape May, N.J. with his wife, son, and dog Riley.
