CP+B has won more Grand Prix awards at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival than any other agency in the past 15 years, and is the only agency to have won the Titanium Grand Prix two times. David joined CP+B in 2006 as the agency’s first European based employee tasked with laying the foundations for CP+B in Europe.

I started working full time for Blain Southern in 2011 in my position as Gallery Manager. In this role I’m responsible for the organization and installation of exhibitions, the storage and transport of artworks and general building and exhibition space maintenance. My career in a gallery context started after I finished my MA in Fine Art in 2002 when I was offered a position as Gallery Assistant and Technician in London’s Serpentine Gallery where I worked until 2006. After relocating to Berlin I continued to work as a freelance gallery technician as well as artist’s assistant for Thomas Demand and Adrian Piper. In 2008 I was offered a gallery assistant job at the gallery Haunch of Venison where I worked part time until 2010.
