David Zimmerle (Zimmer – lee) grew up behind the “Orange Curtain” of South Orange County. After graduating from the University of San Francisco in 2004, he worked as a journalist and sports editor for several California newspapers before honing his chops as an in-house copywriter for different marketing agencies in San Diego. Right now he’s a Content Producer for Sharecare (a Hearst company), crafting words and spearheading marketing campaigns for all things related to health and fitness. In his free time, he works on his debut novel, and will have a selection of his poetry featured in the 99 Poems for the 99 Percent Anthology due out later this year by 99: The Press. On top of his literary ambitions, he enjoys playing guitar and harmonica, writing and recording his own original tunes and booking gigs throughout Southern California. And, when those serpent swells are on the rise, you can find him surfing his favorite breaks in and around North County San Diego.
