Hi. I'm David, and I connect people with meaningful stories, information, and experiences.

Sometimes this means designing news flows with NPR or using 360° media to explain climate data. Sometimes it looks like a lamp but works like a radio. Sometimes it feels like a telephone but helps your grandmother use an iPad.

Often, my work involves digital product design and immersive media. I have created content experiences for news organizations and advised agencies on UX design for virtual environments.

I live and work in NYC, where I recently completed an MFA in Interaction Design at the School of Visual Arts.
