Hi, I'm Dave, an award-winning, multi-disciplinary filmmaker, photographer, artist, writer + consultant. Please don't call me David ... that was a previous life + is now strictly reserved for my mother-in-law.
I guess this all started in 4th grade when I wanted to play the cello, but I was told to play the trumpet instead because my lips were so big. I conceded + went on to fall in love with + rock classical, jazz + big-band trumpet, so naturally it led me to playing drums in the greatest punk band that no-one will ever know. My passion for photography crept in leading to music videos for friends ... then I blacked out + wound up in the future.
I have helped snag Cannes Lions, film festival awards + features in AdWeek, Creativity + Gothamist. I have worked with brands + agencies both big + small, from Universal to Red Bull, the Marley family to Elton John + Grey to BBDO.
My family is everything to me.
What I create with others fulfills me.
I am wildly imperfect.
I have embraced the paradox.
I have no interest in bullshit.
Life is so beautiful it makes me want to vomit.
