David Sands comes to Mode Shift after covering the news for Huffington Post Detroit as an assistant editor. He’s also worked in radio, reporting and recording stories for WDET, and with the Michigan Citizen newspaper, where he penned articles and served as a graphic designer. Aside from these writing gigs, he’s been employed in stints as a truck driver, cartoonist and traveling hardware rep.
David graduated from Kalamazoo College and participated in a study abroad program at the University of Extremadura in Cáceres, Spain. Hiking, graphic novels and stingy brim fedoras number among his many interests. If you look hard enough, you might spot him traveling around Detroit on a 90s-era Mongoose mountain bike.
