About David

Getting older since birth, David decided to get busy writing, a passion developed as a teenager. Years of having characters dance around his head became unbearable, writing THE LOFTS (now renamed LIKE A DRUG) and his first sci-fi FUTURECAST.

David grew up in the deserts of New Mexico. After a stint in the US Navy and graduating from New Mexico State University, lived in Kansas and California for a few years each. He and his wife spent twelve wonderful years in Springfield, MO where much of his inspiration comes from, and began serious writing. A short story –Fortunate Son, published online at narraratorINTERNATIONAL– received Editor’s Pick.

The ever present desire to create and entertain, he continues other high concept sci-fi projects such as DOPPLEGAMER & SMALL CREATURES, in addition to people-focused dramas. He now delves into screenwriting by adapting LIKE A DRUG (formerly THE LOFTS) to the screen and one hour pilots CHASING HUMANITY and PART TIME HEROES.

David also creates short videos, sizzle reels and video pitch decks for his various works.
