David Backes joined the Prichard Communications team in 2012 as an account executive with a focus on social media and digital communications. David began his career as a website copywriter and quickly transitioned into the marketing and advertising side of online communications.
Always striving to add to his digital toolbox, David now has several years' experience in social media marketing, search engine optimization, marketing automation, web design and development, and online usability testing and analysis.
Outside of work, David can be found riding his bike around Portland (rain or shine) or working to perfect his caramelized onion recipe. David also races his bike during the cyclocross season at the mildly competitive beginner level.
David received a bachelor of science in sociology from Santa Clara University and will remain a loyal Steve Nash fan until the Broncos manage to produce another NBA caliber player.
