David joins our team by way of Baltimore, MD where he grew up and lived through his college years. A graduate of The University of Maryland, David spent his formative years playing lacrosse (like any good Marylander), skateboarding, and developing a deep appreciation for punk rock and independent music.

David holds a new role for Laudisi as Community Manager, and his focus is on developing and engaging with our growing online community across all of our brands. In his professional life, David spent many years developing his skills in areas that mean a lot to us: Marketing and Pipes and Cigars. After spending 17 years working for Creative Agencies and in Corporate Marketing, David took a pleasant detour by jumping headlong into the tobacco industry. Prior to joining Laudisi, he managed a busy brick-and-mortar tobacco lounge in Annapolis, MD where he shared his passion with other enthusiasts in a face-to-face setting.

These days, David lives with his girlfriend in Wilmington, NC. A father of 2 amazing kids, David bleeds Liverpool Red (You'll Never Walk Alone!) and enjoys playing tennis. He's a lover of documentaries, a reader of historical fiction, and a proud dog dad to his pitbull, George.
