David is a lifelong resident of New Orleans. He and his wife Britten and their two daughters, Louise and Inez, live Uptown. He grew up in Algiers and has since lived and worked throughout the city: Uptown, Downtown, the French Quarter, the Irish Channel, the Marigny, and Bayou St. John. After earning a degree in English from the University of New Orleans just before Katrina struck, David has made it a point to diversify his work experience. He has been a project manager for a local web developer with clients such as Tulane University, Ritz-Carlton, Brown University, and The Hogan Jazz Archive. He's been a licensed Private Investigator, worked in the field of marine salvage, and most recently, along with his wife, owned and operated a restaurant named after his daughter, Louise.
