About David

In 2011, David Aaron Tripp wrote the screenplay, co-directed, and played the leading role in a short film for the 48 Hour Film Project. The film, entitled "Falling Upward", was a Top 15 Finalist in Chicago, earned a cinema screening in the Best Of Chicago Awards Event, and subsequently took home the Crowd Pleaser Award.

After wrapping a sold-out five-week Advanced Comedic Writing show at The Second City the same year entitled "Ground Control to Planet Keith", David reset his sights on short film production. With another well-received short film notched in his belt entitled "Good Enough to Be True" (2012), he is already two steps ahead of himself with promising projects in various stages of development, and still pursuing work to fit in between.

David is also currently producing, writing, directing, and acting with his collaborative sketch comedy production house onemillionaire.
