About David

I love creating and collaborating with others.


I love doing sitcoms, rom-coms, or comedies in general -- as well as sci-fi/fantasy and superhero adventures. Whether it's a big or small role, I simply enjoy bringing a character to life and helping to tell a story.

Headshots, resume, reel:


I've sold over $100,000 in self-published fiction ebooks. A short film I recently wrote already has more than 500,000 views on YouTube. I specialize in dramas, comedies, romance, and sci-fi/fantasy.

I'm currently looking to build up more screenwriting credits on IMDb. If you're looking for a short script (3-10 pages) and don't have a budget (everybody's gotta start somewhere, I get it), let's talk. I want to help up-and-coming filmmakers. I can give you a short script for free, provided the film actually gets made and I get IMDb credit. (And if you're in Southern California and would like to use me as an actor too, I'm doubly interested! I love having cameos in my own stories -- even if it's just a bit part!)

If you need a writer for a larger project, tell me what your budget is and what you need from me. I'd love to work something out.


I like to appreciate and empower my team. I'm encouraging, supportive, patient, and always see the best in others. I like to create a safe space for artists (both behind the camera and in front) to take creative risks and explore their craft.

Ultimately, I want to take audiences on an emotional journey. I want to inspire their imaginations, connect with them, make them feel good. Help them escape reality and momentarily live in a fantasy world where anything is possible. Make them laugh, make them cry, maybe make them see life from a new perspective or even discover something new about themselves.

That's the power of multimedia entertainment. And I'm so grateful to be able to do this.

The Hotel del Coronado is located in Coronado Beach Town in the nation's 55th state - Southwest California. The owner and operator of The Del is Mr. Sugarman (Andre Zotoff). If Liberace owned a hotel that made dreams come true in the year 2022 - he would be just like Mr. Sugarman. Back in 2017, when Sugarman authorized the excavation of the world's deepest tunnel for a new thrill ride at his Hotel, workers uncovered a strange sky blue-colored mineral when they hit the 8-mile mark - deep below the earth's crust and directly under the Hotel del Coronado.
