David Yen, Designer

David may take the cake in the office for having lived in the most places! He grew up in Brazil, spent his teen years in New York, went to undergrad in Colorado, and completed grad school in Hawaii. David came to the Bay Area to complete a traditional Japanese woodworking apprenticeship and has finally made roots here with his wife and young daughter.  

With a past as an avid surfer, David seeks the great outdoors often, not just for sports and activities, but to find design inspiration as well. He says the best part of living in San Francisco is the close proximity to so many beautiful places. Luckily, David gets to keep the ocean close while he works on a project located in Stinson Beach.
