David was born in 1973 in the city of New York and is the was youngest child in his family. As a kid, he was diagnosed with dyslexia and having to overcome this challenge ultimately gave him a special appreciation for other children with learning difficulties.
Because New York City is a large metropolitan city, David had lots of opportunities to visit many of the city's world-class attractions. One of his favorites was the Metropolitan Museum Of Art were he spent many hours viewing the ever changing exhibits. As a child, he also would spend hours and hours at the midtown Manhattan retail toy store, FAO Schwartz where he experienced the popular educational and pretend children's toys he enjoyed. FAO Schwartz always brought out the child in him.
Growing up in New York City, David met many people, some even famous and admired. He developed many long-lasting friendships that continue to this day. All of David's friendships are important to him and as any reader can tell, they are reflected in his writing.
As a young man, the Metropolitan Museum Of Art was always a favorite visiting place for David. Inspired after an exceptional exhibit of the Temple Of Dendar and the Egyptian Monument built in Nubia, David decided to do something original and creative. It was this mix of inspiration from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, FAO Schwartz, family and friends that motivated him to create the world of "People Who Live In A Pizza".
"People Who Live In A Pizza", the characters, writing and numerous illustrations went through many stages of development and took more than 5 years to complete. This process allowed David, as he likes to say, "...to get the book perfect".
He is currently working on another "People Who Live In A Pizza" children's storybook. How long will it take? Who knows, it is all about the process.
David now lives far from New York City but continues to meet new and interesting people. These relationships continue to inspire him and his writing.
