David is founder and CEO of ROJO (since 2001), NOVA Contemporary Culture (since 2010), THE WRONG New Digital Art Biennale (since 2013) and ABSTRACT EDITIONS (since 2015), a new publishing house to deliver Abstract Literature printed to the world.

David is spending recently some of his "working time" writing articles and interviews for magazines worldwide, mostly about the people he knows and admires, or about any of the projects he is pushing forward when he is not sleeping long quiet siestas, dreaming of new projects and exploring slow ambient dark sounds with his noisy alter ego END OF SOUND, or jumping the keys in the white grand piano recording a second album as member of his new band CACHOPOU. All these projects and dreams happening simultaneously while managing OQUBO, a building in the middle of "nowhere" which hosts OLOFT, a two room guest house, and all ROJO projects and partnerships, an art residence, a creativity school for children and a project/exhibition artspace.

David has evolved into a cultural enterpreneur who in a daily basis unfolds as a curator, writer, speaker, publisher, musician, editor, teacher, film director, creative consultant, designer, programmer, communication strategist, researcher, house keeper, cook, dish washer, pool cleaner, sustainable energy expert, dedicated husband and father of two amazing girls.
