40 Under 40: David Feldman

David Feldman, 33, is the founder and creative Director of 3 Owl.

An accomplished guitarist and music-lover with an entrepreneurial mindset, David Feldman graduated from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School with a unique dual degree in business and music. He has since dedicated himself to supporting and enriching Atlanta’s booming creative community.

“Atlanta has an exceptionally collaborative and imaginative culture,” he says. “I love this community, and I love how Atlantans come together as partners in our city’s unfinished creation.”

In 2012, he founded 3 Owl, a branding, web and content agency. With a team that includes some of Atlanta’s brightest creative professionals, the award-winning agency has helped build the brands and websites of major Atlanta-based organizations, including Mellow Mushroom, Mizuno USA, Emory University and Center Stage Atlanta.

3 Owl is also the branding and design partner for ATL Collective, a nonprofit Feldman helped grow to enrich Atlanta’s music community. The organization brings musicians together to perform live covers of classic albums at venues throughout Atlanta.

“My dad’s inspiring leadership has been one of the driving forces behind my own entrepreneurship,” Feldman said of Dr. Gregory Feldman, founding principal at VitaLink Research. “His generosity, level-headedness, and his ability to see the big picture have been a constant inspiration.”

Feldman is a frequent guest lecturer at the Goizueta Business School, The New School (Atlanta), and General Assembly.

He lives with his wife Alisa and their two labradoodles in a Cabbagetown loft.

“I grew up in a small town in South Carolina without a large Jewish population,” he says. “I have loved living in Atlanta and immersing myself in our vibrant, burgeoning Jewish community through amazing cultural events such as the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival.”
