Semple was recruited from General Motors in 1980 as part of the original design team at Nissan Design International, which NDA was known as originally.

He helped shape the Maxima, Xterra, the Hardbody pickup truck, the Pathfinder sports-utility vehicle and the original Quest minivan.

Nissan Design America has studios in San Diego, California and Farmington Hills, Michigan and both are currently being expanded.
