ABOUT DAVID GROSS

I have an exceptional ability to tell stories in a way that can emotionally connect those who need help with those who can help. I have thirty years experience creating content, medium, and form, through three careers as a photojournalist, software developer, and graphic designer. I specialize in creating cutting-edge multimedia products for common-good advocacy projects. My expertise is in complex and difficult issues that intimately affect ordinary people : war, human rights abuses, disasters, and environmental change.

  • David’s work as a photographer speaks for itself and needs no recommendation from me. But I would add this: He is not only immensely talented, but genuinely fun and easy to be around. That combination is not often found in nature.

  • David is one of the most creative and hard-working people I’ve collaborated with. He understands clients’ needs but always seeks to push the boundaries to find a new and exciting solution. I’ve known him since 1990’s Prague…and he is completely wacky and fun.

    BILL SCANNELL
  • David Gross is terrific. He skillfully designed, coded and produced a website and iPad app for my multi-media project on the Iraq war. It’s hard to imagine working as easily and efficiently with anyone else. He’s unique — a photographer who codes, a coder with a designer’s eye. His heart as well as his skills go into every project he works on.
