David is a director, editor, writer, producer and all around cinema geek, living & working in Los Angeles and sometimes New York. He spends way too much time reading about HDR cinematography and post-production workflows, waxing on about LOST HIGHWAY, DRESSED TO KILL, THE RED SHOES, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, and EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC and why Sensurround was actually pretty cool.
In 2015, he edited 54: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and is now on Blu-Ray and VOD including iTunes, Amazon, and Vudu. This new and vastly different version of the 1998 film includes 44 minutes of footage not seen in the theatrical release and it took six months to recut, restore and reconstruct. The Blu-Ray contains a behind-the-scenes doc called "If You Could Read My Mind" which David produced and edited (and appears in), talking about what it took to make 54:TDC.
In 2009, David wrote, directed and co-edited the award-winning feature film PORNOGRAPHY: A THRILLER. Screening at over 25 film festivals, PORNOGRAPHY won multiple awards before its US theatrical release and is now available on DVD, VOD and Digital HD.

In addition to writing/producing/directing/editing hundreds of promos, sizzles, commercials, branded content pieces, online pieces and interstitials for networks like NBC, AMC, TBS, FX, FXX, Versus, Logo, USA, Showtime, Bravo, IFC, Disney Channel, Sportsman Channel and SundanceTV, David has also written and directed two award-winning short films that played at dozens of festivals: "Fairy Tale" and "Target Audience" (the latter of which was a Teddy award nominee at the Berlin Film Festival).
David lives in Koreatown, Los Angeles with his dog, Jackson. He works out a few times a week, still listens to Nine Inch Nails too loud and strongly questions why anyone would try to remake VIDEODROME.
