Originally from the Midwest, David Stanley has always had a fascination with science and even studied biology at Michigan State University. His interest in orchids turned into a lifetime passion as he became a collector. In his own words, while pondering a premature mid-life crisis, Stanley realized there was more to life than punching a clock and waiting for the weekend.
He chose to work for himself by opening The Orchid Wrangler in March 2001, a retail orchid shop on West Third Street in Los Angeles. Specializing in the gift delivery of these unique blooming beauties, The Wrangler s orchids have graced the homes of Madonna, Sharon Stone, Rene Zellweger, and Brad Pitt. Last year, The Orchid Wrangler was voted Best Florist on Los Angeles City Search. David s work has been featured in the New York Times, Distinction & Sunset magazines and he has dispensed his orchid knowledge on national television shows like WE's Mix It Up! and USA Network's Style Posse.
The longer he operated his business, the clearer it became to him that everyone loved orchids but most people had little understanding of and many misconceptions about them. He set out on a quest to educate and inspire the world on the ease of raising orchids by producing Orchid Secrets Made Simple, the first instructional DVD on orchid care. He adopted the term wrangler from the film business, as a play on the person who is called upon for special expertise handling animals on movie sets. His ultimate goal is to turn thumbs green!
