David Gwynn is a digital projects librarian/archivist and freelance web designer living in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He admits to being 45 years old and is a native of nearby Greensboro. He has also lived in Charlotte and in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. And then there were those thirteen long years in San Francisco

David’s past employment has included stints as a McFlunkie, a DJ, a surf shop manager, a freelance writer, fifteen years in management and training at FedEx Kinko’s, and one very bad day spent working in a plastics factory. Oddly enough, he has never worked in a supermarket nor within the grocery industry.

David’s educational background includes a B.A. in Geography and Sociology (concentrated in Urban Studies) from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Master of Library and Information Studies from that same institution (December, 2009). In his undergraduate days, he presented papers before the Southeast Division of the Association of American Geographers and the North Carolina Sociological Association. Now he just talks to anyone on the street (or on the Internet) who might listen.

David’s hobbies and interests include forgotten US highways, vintage commercial architecture, old movies, used bookstores, and food.
