David has done work for me on various projects over a 20+ year period. He performs within an affordable budget and within scheduled time frames. His knowledge of style, history, scale, color, balance and marketing have allowed me to create several successful and professional marketing strategies. I would recommend him for anything you may be working on that needs immediate attention in the graphic arts, packaging design, writing, ghost writing, editing, presentations, blogs, and more.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always educating myself on new techniques, new software, new programming protocols, etc. to keep on top of my game.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It was what I wanted since I was a kid. My own business producing literature and art. I was good at both and so I decided to pursue it, even though everyone said not to.
