David is the Design and Multimedia Director at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. At Equitable Growth David leads the visual effort covering everything from branding to website design. Together with the Data Visualization Manager he looks for innovative ways to tell the story of whether and how structural changes in the U.S. economy, particularly related to economic inequality, affect growth. In a small organization that requires the use of many hats David has learned to help foster small brainstorm groups that focus on solving individual organizational challenges and then presents those solutions to senior management for approval and implementation. One of the many hats also led David to the opportunity of producing all of the interior visuals for Executive Director, Heather Boushey's, first book, Finding Time.
Prior to joining Equitable Growth, David worked for Bloomberg News as a graphics reporter and at USA Today as a visual journalist. There he collaborated closely with reporters, editors, analysts, and other multimedia professionals to create animated-diagrammatic infographics, data visualizations, and multimedia essays. His work has been recognized by the Society of News Design, Editor & Publisher, the National Press Photographers Association, and the Online News Association. David earned a bachelor’s of fine arts degree in communication arts and design from Virginia Commonwealth University.
