David started his own greeting card company in 1989, which was merged into the Allport Editions family several years later. He has been designing cards for us ever since! When not designing cards he creates interpretive panels for the California parks system—signs that describe the wildlife and history of the parks. He lives in Salinas, CA and when he can find the time, he plays the piano.
Working in pen and ink, David embraces comical characters, poignant puns and wonderful one-liners to craft some of our funniest Everyday and Holiday cards. His warmth and wit shines through in dozens of designs, including our wildly popular 12 Days of Christmas series.
