David launched into his career in the mid-1990s as a graphic designer with a focus on corporate identity and brand management, deploying systems for Corporate 1000 companies and a few well-known golf courses along the way. As the world of communications expanded its reach into the digital realm, he developed products and managed teams that could leverage screen-based solutions to reach target audiences and garner desired reactions. In 2008 he founded Frogman Interactive, a marketing agency that specialized in digital immersive experiences for senior living communities. When Frogman was acquired by the industry’s largest marketing firm, he joined their senior management with a focus on product sales and development. In 2019 he joined Tandem’s Leadership Team to enhance the delivery of creative marketing solutions, returning to his beloved roots and stoking his passion for impactful design. David holds a B.F.A. from East Carolina University.
As a graphic designer, I believe all user experiences, both online and off, should be thoughtfully and elegantly executed to make the world a more beautiful place. As a brand champion, I believe messaging should be strategically developed to foster engagement and maintain audience relevance. As a tech-fanatic, I think these concepts should not be mutually exclusive. And I still believe in starting the day with a printed newspaper.
To implement designs and deploy technologies that solve communication challenges. I seek business camaraderie with others who share a common goal of challenging assumptions. I gravitate to anyone with a spirit of entrepreneurship and a willingness to take risks. Mostly, I want to work for and with people who wish to make a difference in the lives of others.
