David has been in the auction business for decades and moved to the Quad Cities area in 1983. He operated Walnut Creek Auction for 16 years where he hosted more than 500 sales with more than 30,000 attendees (total). Today, he has closed his large auction firm and operates exclusively with fewer, higher-end sales under his own name.

His expertise comes from extensive research into the values and histories of nearly every item he sells, so his audiences get exposed to greater detail about considering a purchase than they do anywhere else. That maximizes the value of every item. Plus, David owns Growth Work, LLC, a marketing firm, where he conducts marketing with more than 200 businesses from across the nation. This background gives him tremendous insight in how to attract crowds via traditional and new, emerging venues.
