David's approach to performance is truly about the mechanics and the instincts conveyed in the text. David says, "Our job is to translate text into a moving, palpable and visceral experience for the audience, to evoke a catharsis. To bring the words to life in a way that is honest to it's present, past and future; that information is written in the subtext. Subtext is the instinctual, emotional manuscript of the character."
David is also a globally knows Spoken Word poet with TV appearances on Seasons 3 and 5 of the NAACP award nominated show Verses and Flow.
David has 15 IMDB producer credits, 12 writer credits and is the founder of Exertion Films, (Los Angeles Production Company).

David was nominated for the prestigious Imagen Award (considered the Latin Golden Globe) for his performance in Our Vows. His original screenplay "CAR" was nominated for the Golden Palm Award at Beverly Hills International Film Festival.
David has a good heart, an almost chameleon-like talent that allows him to adapt to any role... to any circumstance.
