What others are saying

We are so appreciative of David’s willingness to work with us. And he has definitely achieved rock star status with us in the quality and quantity of creativity and content he provided in helping us get this website up and running with such short notice!” – Kay Jenkins, Central Virginia Advance Directives Collaborative

This video is fabulous!! I am going to see if I can show it to my staff in our next staff meeting to give them a better idea of what the ACC is all about so they will feel comfortable broaching the subject with caregivers.” — Maggie Short, head of Nursing Operations & Development at UVA, on a 2019 video I created for an Adult Care Center.

Dave McNair’s cover story, “Celebrity, Suicide and the Etiquette of Envy” raised the writing standards locally to Pulitzer levels. Insightful, deliberate, poignant, and brutally honest. The title foretold it all and made me want to turn the pages. The article taught me something about the music industry I didn’t know– in a non-judgmental way– and gave us all something to ponder.” —author Sally Honenberger
