"You don’t hear the term “Renaissance man” much these days, but if anyone fits that description, it would be David Nelson. “Designer” is probably the easiest label to stick to the Wichita Falls native, since he has created over the years: a clothing line, theater sets, apartments interiors and restaurant concepts for Liberty Noodles and Venus Steakhouse and Supper Club."

David has also been the stylist for many catalog shoots from Neiman Marcus to Spiegel and currently specializes in photography-styling for such clients as Denny’s, Bally Banks & Biddle, TGI Fridays, Tostitots, Grandma’s Cookies, Red Lobster and 7-11.

“As a child, I didn’t want to be an artist; I wanted to be everything,” explains Mr. Nelson. “I didn’t want to have one career, I wanted to have 30 careers. People said, “David, you have to choose one thing!”

“ And I was like, ‘No! I want to be the creative director of the universe before I die – just move that star to the left.” Yet even with his packed resume, he says, “I’ll always feel like I have something to prove. I’ll always feel that I have some new idea to come up with to show people. I always want to have an edgy quality.”
