David's Bio...

Artistic by nature, this Atlanta native and award winning designer has led a life that Hemingway would envy. David has been working as a professional stuntman with hundreds of credits since 1981; during this time he also worked as a deep sea diver (15 years) where he logged over 18,000 hours working underwater on oil rigs, pipe laying barges, doing salvage work and super tankers. He has tales of being lost in the Devil's Triangle, attacked by sharks and losing air at nearly 200'. He was a sparing partner for a Full Contact Karate World Champion, been buried alive in the Houston Astrodome, set on fire, thrown off buildings, jumped cars close to 100', shot off horses and laid down motorcycles and many more "danger is no stranger" life events. David still does this kind of work today.

After Hurricane Katrina, David spent over 8 months working in New Orleans with people who had been impacted by the storm. His photographs of his time there will be in an upcoming series of ebooks.

​The same passion that he has for his life is reflected in his design work. 


When fashion is married to function, you have a design that will inspire for years to come. For over 20 years, David Paul Lord has been doing that type of design. Based in Cobb County GA, this Smyrna native has been quietly doing "good work" as a small design/build firm around Metro Atlanta. With a background as a full service award winning landscape designer, David can see the whole picture. His focus now is primarily landscapes and hardscapes (decks, arbors, gazebos, fences, gates, pergolas, bridges, staircases etc...) He is able to pull it all together with a cohesive design. Over the years, David has been contracted to design for some of Atlanta's top landscape designers and landscape architects to give homes a look of elegance and distinction. His work has been featured several times on Home and Garden Television (HGTV), in movies, in trade shows, as well as highlighted in numerous national magazines, including The Atlanta Journal and Constitution and Decorator Showcase Homes and in a number of the better "Tours of Homes" in and around the Atlanta area.
