David keeps his head in the clouds. He’s our “big ideas” guy and makes the epic plans for how we’re empowering creative professionals to work with greater efficiency and freedom. Sometimes David’s predictions about the future sound crazy, but more often than not he’s right. We’ve learned to trust his gut. Before DesignLive, he started multiple other businesses, most recently a web agency that built over 100 Squarespace websites. He believes in the power of meditation and trains Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
David received a degree in Entrepreneurship from Belmont University. While there, he won a few business awards and competitions. Most notably, being recognized as one of the top 5 student entrepreneurs in the US by the GSEA.
David’s first business was formed around the cheap wayfarer sunglass fad. People would build their own pairs of glasses to match their favorite sports team, their club’s colors, or their pajamas (like one person who bought 5 pairs).
