David is a graduate of Tulane University (B.A. in English) and The Ohio State University College of Law (J.D.). He’s a lifelong lover of the arts and attracted attention from an early age for his poetry, short stories, and a contest-winning work of abstract art at the age of nine. That piece—“Man, Machine, & Society”—was displayed for two weeks in the Dallas Museum of Art.
After practicing law for a number of years, David returned to his first love: creative writing. He has a thriller being packaged and has had multiple other feature scripts optioned. He’s a collaborative problem solver who receives notes and implements them in inventive ways, usually at a cost savings for producers. His writing style is efficient and visual.
David lives with his wife—a yoga instructor and artist—in Southern California.
