About the Guest
David comes from the East Coast of Canada where he graduated from Saint Mary’s University with a Bachelors of Commerce and Certificate in Human Resource Management. With a career spanning multiple industries from Legal to Information Technology in both Canada and the United states, it took a chance encounter and encouragement from a friend in Hollywood to make the leap into Photography. Three years later, David now proudly resides in Chicago as part of the Phlearn Team striving to create a better art community through education and collaboration.
In the past few years, David has served as Chapter Vice Presidents of both the American Society of Media Photographers and the Professional Photographers of America, was a featured artist for RAW; Natural Born Artists, received 2 diplomas in Film making, and has won multiple awards for Photography including the American Photographic Artists People Choice, and the Victor Award for Outstanding Image of the Year from the PPA. His Film Noir series of images even inspired an episode of Warehouse 13 on the SyFy network!!!! (NERD-GASM!)
