Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, David fell in love with art, particularly visual storytelling, at a young age. He began making his own comic strips and submitting them to the Post-Dispatch at the age of 8. The Post very graciously turned David down, with the editor at the time sending him a rejection letter that encouraged him to continue to pursue his dream of becoming a cartoonist. David went on to become a professional graphic artist and cartoonist, and was a founding member of legendary St. Louis art crews Air Assault and later Mach One. He is now a professional artist with credits that include Drawn In comic books!
