David is originally from Decatur, Illinois. He attended Williams College in Massachusetts, graduating magna cum laude with a B.A. in Psychology in 2003. While at Williams, he developed a love for architecture and architectural history, and tried a year of architectural graduate school at Ohio State before heading for the West Coast.
After brief stints at a boutique advertising agency, as an in-house designer, and in-house search marketer, David decided to start his own small business in early 2006 and has been loving life ever since. He’s been a full-time resident of Portland, Oregon since early 2008.
David is a passionate golfer and when he has time to play, maintains a scratch handicap. He is particularly fond of the world’s great links courses, including Ballybunion, Carne, Royal Aberdeen, Nairn, Cruden Bay, Ballyneal in Colorado, and Oregon’s own Old Macdonald and Bandon Dunes.
