About David Stanley

David Stanley grew up in the Toner Institute, a Catholic orphanage near Pittsburgh, PA. An itinerant, irreverent and sometimes controversial cultural satirist, he is an accomplished watercolorist and a former marine. For over twenty years he traveled the country working as a carnival hand, prospector, lumberjack, carpenter, bicycle messenger and camp caretaker, interspersed with extensive bicycle tours across Arizona and up the northwestern coast, and wilderness backpacking trips to Superstition Mountain and Grand Canyon. He has since worked as a substitute teacher, and spent several years as a volunteer tutor in elementary after-school programs.
