Isle of Palms, born and raised; just ask him. His feet heavily planted in Charleston, David grew up an Island boy and his calm demeanor and thoughtful consideration are fully reflected in his everyday life. He claims that his kids raise him, not the other way around. “They’ve taught me to be patient, to be understanding, and with three very different personalities, they’ve made me a more adaptive teacher; I’m a better person because of them “.
As a principal with the company, he is very meticulous and careful in the way that projects develop; from the initial interview down to the logistics of project management. Unwavering courtesy, politeness and his common sense approach to interaction with clients are what elevate the level of service that David offers our projects. Creativity and innovation keep him motivated to search out new ideas and concepts that reach to the ever changing audience that we cater to.
