"I'm David, a painter by trade (MFA) and map-maker by day. I designed the first map of Dallas in 2011 as a healthy distraction from my "real" studio work - a way to get to know my hometown better. That first map took off, and I now run Native Maps out of our studio in Knoxville, Tennessee."
"A little about me: as an artist-turned-entrepreneur, I love advocating for makers and small businesses. I helped found The Maker City here in Knoxville - a hub of resources for creative solo-preneurs. I also own and run a studio building full of artists and makers out of a historic church in Knoxville."
