Born in the twilight of last century, David spent his youth scouring the wilderness for rusty junk, laboring to assemble these items into odd sculptures and corroded mementos. These sensibilities were later channeled into more traditional art forms at University of California, Santa Cruz where he studied printmaking and bookbinding. After graduating he went on to explore a widening variety of mediums until ultimately finding his way back to materials with the patina of time; rusty metal, industrial castaways, found objects and unfinished woods.
He has incorporated new tricks along the way including welding, carpentry and stagecraft. He was co-creator of The Great Handcar Regatta, raced in the Kinetic Grand Championships in Humboldt, and been involved in Maker Faire, Burningman, and other public events. He has been commissioned by New Belgium Brewing Company, recording artists Primus and varied private clients. His portfolio gives a glimpse into his evolving interests from the utility of a hand made table to fantastical kinetic sculptures. If you can dream it up, he can build it. But only if its interesting. Kidding...sort of. All this in an old feed barn in Santa Rosa Ca.
