Fellow, ILC Dover LP 

Founding Director, "Space for Art"

David Graziosi is an ILC Dover Fellow located at their Houston operation.  

He holds a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering & Minor in Mathematics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He has more than 26 years of experience in the development of spacesuits & spacesuit components including Shuttle EMU Enhancements, Phase VI EVA spacesuit gloves, MkIII Suit Enhancements, all versions of the I-Suit Advanced Planetary EVA suits, several recent launch & entry (LEA) spacesuits, StratEx Space Dive suit, & NASA’s Z-1 & Z-2 spacesuits.  


David holds three US patents that include spacesuit technology & inflatable wing structures. He has authored more than 20 peer reviewed technical papers on spacesuit development. David has also received the NASA Silver Snoopy Award, numerous NASA Group Achievement awards & was a 2007 NASA Space Flight Achievement Honoree & NASA Stellar Award finalist.


After a conversation with Gordan Andrews (NASA ISS Program Communications) & Ian Cion in October 2015 about Ian’s vision for a spacesuit made from the art of pediatric cancer patients, David was all in.  The subject hit close to home, as it does for many, as the daughter of a close friend fought & overcame her battle with cancer at just 2 years old. When he discussed the Space for Art projects with others at ILC Dover, including senior management, the company was also committed to this important cause.
