David Butler is a creative business professional that has been building his profile since 2011. Originally beginning his "professional" career with Coca Cola Bottling Company Consolidated as a Supply Chain Planning Analyst in 2013 - Butler quickly realized he had a desire to turn the things he loved and lived into a career. 


He began free-lancing as a brand consultant, photographer, and videographer with his firm the Featherbed, LLC in April 2014. By 2016, Dave had built a brand and representation as a creative business leader in his local area and landed a job with boutique retail giant "The Whitaker Grp" - Servicing A Ma Maniere, Social Status, APB, and Prosper - He built the e-commerce operation from scratch and secured the seven figure revenue stream before his departure from the company in November of 2017.
