David became interested in the world of interior design simply when he met his interior designer wife (and Surroundings co-worker), Erica Rodgers. She introduced him to HGTV, which he fell truly enjoyed watching their shows and was amazed by the all the project transformations. David has a Bachelors degree in Business Management with a focus in Music Business, and he also have his MBA with a specialization in Computer Science. With the various educational focus and interior design inspiration, he is a valuable Operations Manager at Surroundings Furniture & Design.
David’s favorite part about this industry is seeing the gradual transformation of an empty house into a beautifully decorated home and knowing how happy it makes our clients. He loves that our design team can take something that’s so simple and make a masterpiece out of a home is much appreciated by our customers and leaves them stunned every time. Surroundings is so happy to have a passionate person internally to provide the unlimited potential for growth to go above and beyond expectations. We are proud to have him here so our team can keep our clients happy at the end of every transaction.
When David isn’t in the showroom, he loves creative writing, drawing, music, movies, bowling, going to art exhibits and museums/ planetariums, and exploring new ideas. He loves to listen to Michael Jackson and his favorite movie is Scarface. David is inspired and motivated by his family every day to be better.
