Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, David got his start in the electrical business working summers with his father doing electrical work in residential and commercial construction. During his senior year in high school and his freshman year in college, David worked for United Artists Theatre Circuit. It was during this time David learned the ins and outs of the theatre business first hand. David thought it would be a great idea to sell theatres light bulbs that didn't burn out as often, since it was he who had to change them.
After graduating from college in 1991, David did a short stint selling light fixtures before starting David Tyson Lighting in 1993 to promote long-life bulbs to the theatre industry.
