This is Us
David – Founder, Creative Director
At an early age David was drawn to the creativity of the arts, but it was during art school he discovered a love of magazines, an appreciation for design, along with the realization he was gay.
David’s altruistic nature manifested into non-profit and charity work for the gay community where he exercised his keen design and performance skills to encourage and entertain others during the early years of the HIV crisis.
His careers in magazine and interior design, along with his volunteer fundraising have collectively converted this small town boy from Ontario, Canada into a successful urban man full of gratitude.
MancessoriesUSA presented to David a new avenue for creative expression. His vision for male fashion accessories focuses on presenting unique, sophisticated, and desirable products for the man who leads the way, is well heeled, dresses with flair, and passionate about life.
David’s after hour’s fun includes reading murder mysteries, viewing doomsday movies, fashion shopping (of course), scouring thrift stores for vintage and pop collectibles, and entertainment.
Fred – Co-Founder, CEO
Fred received a Visual Communications degree in Maryland in the early 1970s, and then went on to serve in the US Army during the Viet Nam era. After discharge and being an entrepreneur at heart, he started and operated several businesses in Maryland and Virginia.
