MEDIA & MESSAGE
Partner at Village Square
With over 20 years of helping to elect Democratic Presidents, Governors, Senators, and Members of Congress, David is one of the most experienced media consultants in the U.S., working in both the TV and digital spaces. Before that, David served as a campaign manager and press secretary and so has experience in most aspects of campaigns.
David served as DNC communications director for President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign and, in the 2012 elections, was part of the Priorities USA advertising team that wrote, directed, and produced ads in support of President Obama.
In 2015, he wrote and produced the ads for the successful campaign in the U.S. in favor of the nuclear agreement with Iran and advised on the political, legislative, and grassroots strategy for that campaign. David has also worked internationally, most notably in the UK and Israel.
David and Village Square’s sister firm, People First, have developed a new model for campaign communications that marries traditional top-down consultant-driven TV and digital creative with bottom-up peer-to-peer content by micro and nano-influencers, aided by powerful social listening tools. This new approach has proven itself in many U.S. campaigns, including for President Joe Biden, as well as for numerous advocacy campaigns in the U.S. and around the world.
