David got his start in show biz, about 25 years ago, on the very first Mazda Miata commercial. As a production assistant, he spent the hours on set soaking up as much knowledge as possible (remind him to tell you how he learned what an “apple box” was).  He knew right then that he wanted to direct commercials and set out to make that dream a reality.

From film school at San Francisco State to Camera Assistant to Costumer to Editor, DP and Director, David has experienced commercial production from all angles, giving him a unique perspective on telling his client’s stories in a comprehensive way.

David has had a film nominated for a Student Academy Award, won numerous categories of the 48 Hour Film Project, including Best Film in 2008, as well as a Bronze Telly Award.

He is currently based in Portland, Oregon after living and working in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Madison, Wisconsin.
