Dave was (is) the heart and soul of the great advertising agency, Wieden and Kennedy. He and his partner, Dan Wieden, formed an advertising agency in Portland, Oregon, to live a sane, civilized, small town life, free from the pressures of New York and Chicago. Well, they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, creating a creative megaforce (thanks to an equally iconoclastic client, Phil Knight, of NIKE). Dave ‘retired’ a while ago to spend more time sculpting. He also realized a dream of his (and graciously allowed me to be a part of it) by working with the American Indian Community doing commercials for the American Indian College Fund. This project changed my life by opening my eyes to a vision of history that I didn’t know existed. Dave was taken into the Blackfoot Tribe in a ceremony that I will never forget. He is a great man in many ways.
