David began working as a nail professional over 20 years ago in the United States, specifically in Los Angeles and San Diego. David was a licensed manicurist in the state of California working as a nail professional in the beginning of his career. As he developed his nail skills, he made the decision to delve deeper into the beauty industry and began educating others. Working as an educator he found his mentor, Jan Arnold (co-founder of CND). David’s eyes were opened to the depth of the beauty industry, and at the time, specifically in the nail industry. David, in cooperation with CND and Fred Segal Beauty in Beverly Hills, chose the opportunity to create nails for Hollywood celebrities and musicians. He was invited to the Oscars, the Grammys, the Sundance Film Festival, and fashion events in New York and Los Angeles. The runway shows in those fashion events evolved into further interest in “beauty and fashion”. David’s horizon expanded with his diverse experiences in Southern California along with his development as an educator.

In 2004 David made the decision to move to Germany to expand his resume globally. Upon arriving in Germany, he began working as a nail professional in a small studio located outside of Frankfurt and immediately began educating others throughout Germany. Within two years David found himself educating globally as one of the most successful nail professionals and educators worldwide. David’s art and method of teaching became a sensation and motivated and endless list of the nail industries top nail professionals. David has educated on every continent and well over 100 countries throughout the world. With his experience David decided to further supplement his resume and began consulting with professional nail brands worldwide.

David’s consulting work has included numerous professional brands that are sold, with success, in a competitive global market. He has worked hand in hand with chemists and chemical engineers in creating specific formulas in all nail enhancement systems. These enhancement systems include; monomer and polymer (acrylic), UV/LED gel, and UV/LED gel polish. David has also ventured into new technological nail polish production that is optimal in the consumer market. David has consulted in marketing campaigns to assist in building brand awareness and success. He is proficient in working with acclaimed photographers in creating imagery, video and still photos, for marketing campaigns. Always diving deeper into his creativity David decided to start refining his image and style with individual apparel designed by David himself. This unique creative approach, David as a brand himself, and the combination of the beauty and nail industry continues to excite and motivate people from all walks of life.
