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 few 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.
