He took the position after developing years of experience as a multi-media artist, filmmaker, fundraiser, supporter, and promoter of the arts, as well as an advocate for underrepresented communities. He currently serves on the Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and is the first Latino to chair the Tri-Cities Legislative Council. Davin is the founder of the Tri-Cities Latino Community Network, and is a former member of the Richland City Arts Commission. He was instrumental in establishing the region’s first TEDx talks, as well as developing several public art projects.
Davin is the founder of DrewBoy Creative (DBC). DBC launched in November 2015 with the premier of the art documentary “Faceless Fields of Colour” and an accompanying art show. In February 2016 DBC opened its gallery doors with their partner Confluent Space Tri-Cities. Through the arts, DBC develops art exhibitions and events that create experiences that stimulate conversation and community by celebrating and supporting amateur, outsider, and professional artists. They prioritize and promote art from individuals who are emerging artists, from diverse or marginalized backgrounds, or challenge the traditional school of thought related to art.
