David is an expert in solving problems through communications. In the last two decades, he led four organizations and launched multiple social impact enterprises often drawing local and national recognition for his work from council members, mayors and congress members. He’s also received recognition from the Annenberg Foundation, Los Angeles Social Venture Partners, New Leaders Council and the Wells Fargo Executive Leadership program.
When David consults with clients, he offers more than the perspective of a marketing expert but also of a leader having helmed similar organizations and earned a master’s degree in public management from Cal State Los Angeles. The seasoned managing partner’s first foray into business was as a graphic designer after obtaining an art degree from Point Loma Nazarene University. He taught art abroad in Central America and locally in Los Angeles before entering the social impact sector. David launched various nonprofit and business ventures, including San Fernando Valley’s Youth Speak Collective. His latest venture with Momentum Solutions allows him to mix creativity, a social impact leadership background and a professional coaching certification when working with their clients.
David has an authentic dedication to the values of inclusion, creative leadership and innovation. He serves clients, donors, civic leaders and community residents that share his values. Past clients range from family foundations, Fortune 1000 businesses, nonprofits to coaching individual leaders.
He continues to teach thought leadership, social media and marketing strategy as a guest lecturer and trainer at CSULA, USC, UCLA, CSUN, First 5 L.A., Executive Service Corps of Southern California and other institutions. Recently, he became a founding member of the Make Change Awards and L.A. Latino Giving Circle. When he isn’t working, David enjoys exploring the many communities that make up the City of Angels with his family.
