David Maurice Sharp
David Maurice Sharp’s unique background allows him to relate to his audience both as an artist and as a financial professional. He danced with the Mimi Garrard Dance Theatre from 1993 to 2001, as well as with other companies including Lucinda Childs, Blondell Cummings, and others. Currently, as a financial professional, David works for Prime Clerk as a Director of Solicitation in their New York office, specializing in US and international restructurings, particularly those that involve public securities. David was a founding member and initiated the formation of the Thriving Artists Investment Club, a limited partnership established by a small group of artist/friends to educate one another about investing and personal portfolio management. Through that, he also gained greater insight into how the artist can best be educated about their finances and investing. In October 2014, David was named a “money hero” for his work in educating artists about their finances by Money magazine.
