David has been reporting on and writing about the hospitality industry for nearly 20 years. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, David arrived in one of the global capitols of hospitality: Las Vegas. His first jobs in America’s Playground were at nightclub Ice, after-hours hot spot Seven, and upscale club Treasures. He then became the head writer and managing editor of a publication called Vegas Party Life in 2006.
As a hospitality and nightlife journalist in one of the hottest markets in the world, David constantly sought to educate himself about the business. He maintains his voracious curiosity about every aspect of the industry today, keeping up with and tracking trends that shape the restaurant, bar, nightclub, and hotel spaces.
In 2012, David was hired as a freelance journalist and contributor to cover the annual Nightclub & Bar Conference & Trade Show. He accepted a full-time position with Nightclub & Bar in 2015, becoming editor for digital platform Nightclub.com shortly after coming on board.
