Why Sumoflam? - David has always been a fan of sumo wrestling and originally had created an email address as "sumoman" back in the late 1980s. Through his involvement with Antsy McClain, whose fans are known as "Flamingoheads", he decided to change his moniker to "Sumoflam"--thus the Sumo Flamingo logo that can be found in his profiles all over the web. This logo was conceived by David and lovingly drawn by Antsy McClain, who not only is a fabulous singer/songwriter, but also an AMAZING artist (see http://www.antsy.net).
He is the father of five and also has NINE grandchildren who call him Grampz. He has been married to his wife Julianne, a fabric artist and fellow employee at iHigh.com, for more than 33 years and he truly Married Up!!
