Meet the Team


David Luten, Creator and Founder

You can call me Dave.  I started the modern magellan because I love to travel.  I love to explore. I love experience new places and new cultures. You’d be hard pressed to find somebody more passionate about those things, but go ahead and try!  With an eclectic background ranging from cooking in the country’s top kitchens to working for some of the fastest growing tech start-ups, I like to say I can bring just about anything to the table.  At the modern magellan, I use my design and user experience skills in every website project.  I bring my marketing and branding expertise into each social media strategy, and I always provide a wealth of creativity and sense of adventure into every photography shoot.  But most importantly, I have a passion for people and building relationships– and that’s I want to bring to you and your small business.
