About

David MoldawerI’m the Director of Business at CreativeLive, an innovative, online education start-up based in Seattle and San Francisco. Short version: it’s a live, online classroom connecting creative professionals with the world’s most inspiring experts. Learn more about us at the New York Times, TechCrunch, and AllThingsD.

Before I started there, I was a book editor. I got my start in publishing as an editorial assistant at Riverhead Books, an imprint of Penguin Group. From there, I went to St. Martin’s Press, part of Macmillan, and then Portfolio, also an imprint of Penguin Group, before arriving for a brief stint at McGraw-Hill Professional. My last traditional editorial role was at Amazon’s New York publishing house.

I live with my wife and son in Brooklyn. My wife, Samantha Hahn, is a commercial illustrator who maintains a popular design blog, Maquette.

Before I got into publishing, I had a short-lived career in theater. I earned my degree in theater from Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts.
