David starting designing cards in 1989, and has been with Allport Editions ever since then. 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.
