David, a problem solver and inventor at heart, has worn many hats above + below-the-line. His short films have won awards and two of his feature screenplays were semi-finalists in The Page and Creative World screenwriting contests. David is a life-long student of Behavioral Psychology and Communications. Early on he was courted by college recruiters for his skill to pitch a baseball, but nowadays divides his time between filmmaking, writing, producing, and pitching screenplays instead.
