Sarasota, FL
David has been recognized as one of the most important industry leaders in establishing solutions for the next generation of educational environments. His company, Cultural-Shift has been the honored recipient of the A4LE Industry partner award as well as the EdSpaces/IIDA Excellence in Innovation Award in his partnership with VS America with the creation of the line of furniture known as Shift+.

With the design of this first holistic, reconfigurable array of educational furniture components further defined as the only line of educational furniture created by a public education employee, Shift+ has initiated a movement in the furniture marketplace that has never before been seen.

David supports schools, colleges and universities as well as architectural firms by assisting them in programming, professional development as well as design conversations surrounding the disruptive approach to facility design. This approach emphasizes the understanding that this bottom up approach enables opportunities to bridge disconnects that exist within the traditional approaches to facility design. The built environments result in demonstrated examples of 100% engagement and wonder not to mention underlying themes such as sustainability and improved IAQ.

David is truly passionate about the holistic design of all educational spaces and is developing research with university parterships, one of which will study proxemics as it relates to appropriate tools in various learning environments.

Cultural Shift’s solutions can be seen in the installations of private schools in Punahou, Hawaii and the Kahn Academy’s first brick and mortar facility as well as numerous public and higher educational facilities throughout the world.

Cultural Shift has been recently working on a three-tiered concept of high-capacity, agile Maker solutions that begs to consider a MakerCulture in lieu of a MakerSpace, has been recently asked to join the American Library Association’s Furniture Committee and is nearing the start up of one of his true passions; a 40 meg solar energy facility in Oconee County, Georgia.
