About the Author

While originally from “off,” David R. AvRutick has been a full-time resident of downtown Charleston for almost twenty years, having been a part-time resident for the previous ten. As the founding president of the American College of the Building Arts––the only college of its kind in the United States––David led the creation of this unique Charleston institution which educates those who now help restore, maintain, and create lasting beauty in the structures of Charleston, the nation, and beyond. When not taking photographs, David is a serial entrepreneur (check out what Alice’s Clubhouse is doing for families suffering with Alzheimer’s and dementia) and lives two blocks from the Battery in downtown Charleston with his wife, two children, and their cats Max and Lola. You can reach David through the Glimpses of Charleston Facebook page or the Glimpses of Charleston website.
