David grew up in rural Pennsylvania. He attended Brigham Young University where he pursued a degree in Business Management. But through all the classes on cash flows and price elasticities, David was still in love with art. He worked several years as a graphic designer and published his first children's book at age 19. David also took two years off school to serve a church mission to Thailand, which was probably the most formative experience of his life.
David graduated in business from BYU in 2013 and joined Familius as a partner. He works as Creative Director and also oversees all digital initiatives for the company. He lives in California with his wife and son.
