David spent his early days sipping on agua de coco and rum under the palm trees in the tropical island Puerto Rico. He then wandered to the land of the rising sun, Japan, where he found the most addicting substance in the entire world. That is Hokkaido' s heavenly good powder snow.
Having an intense snowboarding training of constantly being stuck in deep snow, he started following his friends with DSLR in hand, documenting all of their 180 turns, grabs, ground tricks and kicker jumps. As well as every single one of their fails and crashes. He's been shooting winter sports ever since then.
While his work focuses on ski and snowboard photography, he also enjoys shooting time lapse clips at the top of Mount Fuji, where he works as part of the team of Fuji Mountain Guides during the warm months.
David holds a Canadian Snowboard Instructor's license, Avalanche Skills Training and 40 hours of Wilderness First Aid. He's currently in pursuit of Wilderness First Responders and Avalanche Ski Operations certifications.
