Over the years David has worn many hats above and below-the-line. His films have won several awards and two of his feature screenplays were semi-finalists in The Page and Creative World screenwriting contests. David attended NYU’s film program and 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.
THE GIFT (2019) is proud to be the recipient of the AWARD OF MERIT by the BEST SHORTS COMPETITION 2020.

(Sadly, veteran suicides are up by 22% in recent years).

HIRE ME to direct! Socially-minded, satirical dramas, screwball comedies and animated Disney-esque type stories for the younger set are near and dear to my heart. Three new feature scripts are in development!
