He is a founding member of Midwest Volleyball Professionals and an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin, where he played goaltender for the national champion Badgers hockey team.

David is a consummate visual artist with a host of skills in his toolbox. Early on in his career he could be found on a film set, making magic for the camera for clients like McDonald’s and Reese’s. Developing quick solutions to challenging technical problems is what separates David from the pack. In 1988, David built his first photography darkroom. Home training himself through Ansel Adams' books "Negative" and "Print", the strict practices and techniques of the zone system master gave him a solid traditional best practices methodology for optimizing black and white prints. Soon, he began exploring special effect photo illustration techniques using multiple images composited together with pin registrantio, kodalith masks and in-camera masks. In 1992, he built his second darkroom which included full color imaging and duplication capability.
