After spending a short time as a corrections and law enforcement officer, in 2003, David took the leap into the entertainment business pursuing his life-long dream of becoming a director.

Since 2004, David has worked steadily as a director, producer and writer in film and television. David splits his time between Los Angeles, CA and Austin, TX and is a member of the Director's Guild of America.
