As Editorial Director of Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America from September 2013 to July 2015, David created and edited content for the group’s website and blog at: http://www.hermione2015.com. The Hermione is the name of the French Frigate that carried Lafayette to America in 1780. In 2015, a full-size replica of this historic vessel makes a return voyage from Rochefort, France to the East coast of the U.S. Here is a brief summary of Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America’s mission:
Twenty years ago a small group met together and discussed the idea of reconstructing an exact replica of L’Hermione. Now it is almost completed – originally one of the most authentically built Tall Ships ever. Meantime, the idea grew that L’Hermione should sail to the USA – bringing to life the voyage made by LaFayette in 1780 and re-affirming the historic relationship between the United States and France. L’Hermione’s first voyage will take her across the Atlantic – voyage 2015.
David is also an established marketing communications specialist for leading US and global wine and spirits companies, including Bacardi USA, Champagne Dom Pérignon, Constellation Brands, Kobrand Corp, Marnier-Lapostolle USA, Moët Hennessy USA, Pernod Ricard USA, Southern Wine & Spirits of America, Inc., and Frederick Wildman and Sons, Ltd., among others.
A recognized authority on Armagnac, France’s oldest brandy, David was inducted into the Compagnie des Mousquetaires d’Armagnac, an international society of Armagnac lovers, in 1993, and, in 2012, was interviewed on Heritage Radio Network about all things Armagnac.
