David Garcia, President, is an 8th generation Santa Fean, 12th generation New Mexican and Native American, with a background in Liberal Arts and Sciences; Literary Publishing and Marketing; Historic Preservation and Restoration of museum quality European Antiques and Decorative Arts; and 18 years experience in Luxury Residential and Commercial Interior Design throughout New Mexico, Texas, and California. David's family has served the city of Santa Fe for over two centuries in judicial civic services and as stonemasons of notably beautiful historic buildings throughout Santa Fe including America's oldest church San Miguel Mission, and the Cathedral Basilica de St. Francis de Asis.
Many original homes on the famous Canyon Road were also established by David's family, such as the property known as El Zaguan, a wonderful example of Pueblo and Territorial architecture preserved by the efforts of John Gaw Meem and now the home of the Historic Santa Fe Foundation. Once written about as "one of the finest villas,...none more inviting on the whole range of the Rock Mountain section," it no doubt impacted and influenced Meem in his study and development of the revivalist forms he called the Santa Fe Style.
Growing up in Santa Fe, attending Santa Fe Preparatory, and being an alumnus of St. John’s College, David brings personal understanding to life in the City Different.

LA VIDA ENCANTADA IN AMERICA'S HISTORIC ARTS CAPITAL CITY
Santa Fe (/ˌsæntəˈfeɪ/ or /ˈsæntəˌfeɪ/; Tewa: Ogha Po'oge, Navajo: Yootó) is the capital of the state of New Mexico. It is the fourth-largest city in the state and the seat of Santa Fe County. This area was occupied for several thousand years by indigenous peoples who built villages several hundred years ago on the current site of the city. It was known by the Tewa inhabitants as Ogha Po'oge (White Shell Water Place). The city of Santa Fe, founded by Spanish colonists in 1610, is the oldest city in the state and the oldest state capital city in the United States. Santa Fe, meaning Holy Faith in Spanish, had a population of 69,204 in 2012. It is the principal city of a Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses all of Santa Fe County and is part of the larger Albuquerque–Santa Fe–Las Vegas combined statistical area. The city's full name as founded remains La Villa Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asís (The Royal City of the Holy Faith of Saint Francis of Assisi).
