David’s role as director of business development “perfectly balances my passions for business, design and making connections.”. “Having worked for general contractors in the past, I’ve always admired how buildings come together. And coming from a family of writers and artists, I am completely in my element within the creative world of architecture and entrepreneurial culture of SmithGroup. It’s incredibly gratifying to learn about a project opportunity, assemble a team, and witness professionals execute masterfully.” Two seminal events shaped David’s positive outlook. The first was working for the construction firm that rebuilt the World Trade Center after 9/11; the second was his brother’s involvement in a serious car accident. “Ever since, I have never taken anything in life for granted, and try to do my best each day,” he says. Ask about something that represents a favorite pastime, and David responds in classic Southern California fashion: “A surfboard—it’s probably in my car right now.”
