David Shafei grew up in Hilton Hotels. He spent his elementary and high school years living in
the Walt Disney World Hilton. That much Disney does something to a small child. What exactly,
we’re all still figuring out.
David went on to attend Boston College and then Loyola Law School (law school being the
most obvious and fastest route into directing). During law school he started working in
commercial and music video production for companies including HKM, Smuggler and Rock
Fight, going on to direct music videos and interactive content before breaking into
commercials. As a commercial director he’s worked with brands like FedEx, Snickers, Android,
Old Spice, Nature’s Bounty, ESPN, Virgin America, Chex Mix and Pepsi amongst many others.
His work has garnered numerous awards including multiple Cannes Lions and One Show
David is co-founder of the production company World War Seven and is a good guy. But don’t
take our word for it. Here’s what verified Airbnb host Paolo had to say:
“Smart, fun and clean. It’s really nice to have David and family as guest.
And he really loves to play with dogs.”
