David K. Drew II
is a native of Augusta, GA. He graduated from the Academy of Richmond County after which he joined and spent 21 ½ years in the United States Army. After retiring in 1998, he enrolled and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Georgia Military College (Atlanta, GA) majoring in Education. He is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society, an Eagle Scout, Who’s Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges, and a Bronze Star recipient from Operation Desert Shield/Storm where he served with the “Rock of the Marne” (Dogface Soldier) 3rd Infantry Division.
As an author, he experienced great success through the publishing of his first book of Poetry "Can You Hear the Drums" which is how he got connected with Bob J. Gaye and BJG Productions as a screenwriter. That alliance has enabled him to work in community television for the past fourteen years. This alliance also enabled him to garner experience both behind the camera, as a Producer and Director, as well as in front of the camera as a featured Actor.
David’s first Novel "Augusta Nights" chronicles the history of Augusta Georgia’s African American community and the life of the most powerful political family in the South.
