An ex-Chicagoan transplanted to the Holy City, David is a copywriter, narrative designer, and author.

He doesn’t have the ubiquitous cat or dog, but he does have a condescending bonsai that silently taunts him about how it will outlive him by hundreds of years – assuming he doesn’t forget to water it.

David got his start in writing when he took top honors at the Writers of the Future Awards for his story “The Paradise Aperture.” Formerly, he has copyedited for the Hugo-nominated Lightspeed Magazine.
