Throughout his career David has been deeply engaged with understanding and creating narratives. In his current role as a Senior User Experience Designer at Avvo, he’s been working to use technology to facilitate connections between consumers and lawyers. As an advocate for user-centered design, he’s worked to make the legal space simpler to navigate. He has also worked as a content strategist, writer, editor, and educator, and holds a Ph.D. in English Language and Literature from the University of Washington.

Underlying both his academic experience and work in the technology sector is a passion for language and storytelling. As a humanities scholar working in the technology industry, his interest is in the human side of digital media, and the ways storytelling is shaping and being reshaped in the 21st century. Outside of work he enjoys reading, sailing, and all things sci-fi.
