David spent two decades kicking around the back alleys of journalism, doing time at Hawaii Public Radio, news radio stations large and small, and newspapers including the Honolulu Advertiser and Oregon City News. He is currently married and raising two kids on the suburban fringe of Portland, Oregon, where he writes, draws webcomics, and works as a copywriter in the construction industry.
