David Canavan has spent over a decade working in New York City as a copywriter and roughly five years inventing ways to lose AirPods. In both cases, he has wide experience. In copywriting, he's had Super Bowl campaigns and global brand relaunches. In AirPod misplacement, he's lost them in the Agean sea, in cabs, airplanes and the gap between the subway car and the platform. Aside from these misadventures, he's spent his time working on tech brands like Facebook, Google, and AT&T and consumer packaged goods like Pringles, Downy, Kerrygold and many more. 

His work has been recognized by the One Show and the Art Directors Club and been written about in publications like Communication Arts, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. He is a graduate of the VCU Brandcenter and is currently based in New York. 

He enjoys stylish socks, non-fiction, clean car interiors and anything timeless or obsolete.
