15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Not so long ago, David was managing software engineering teams in Silicon Valley. He loved his positions, projects, and colleagues, and the world of start-up innovation was endlessly exciting. But his inner artist always hovered in the background. He drew constantly as a child and later, as a working adult, took frequent art classes at night to feed this part of his soul. When a company shutdown loomed in 2013, David decided to leap, once and for all, into the creative realm that beckoned. He hasn’t looked back.
