David Endicott

After cutting his teeth on the San Diego skate punk scene growing up Dave eventually left it behind for the grunge rock and hip hop of Seattle trading his Blink-182 and Social Distortion for Nirvana, Macklemore and Blue Scholars. While the scene is different the love of capturing it on SD card remains the same. Feeling most at home behind a lens within the crowd that is where you’ll find him at any of Seattle’s ​venues.

Not only is he a multi-media journalist, he is also an accomplished musician. He is the founder of SMI and drives the creative look, feel and branding for the publication. His years of writing, arranging, and performing live music in a variety of genres inform his ability to communicate the message and the mechanics of music. Roth’s work on SMI reflects his philosophy that music is the universal language, and builds community. He believes it has the power to unite people of every race, religion, gender, and persuasion.
