In addition to being a writer of short stories, screenplays, and a children's book, David is presently launching his career as a novelist with his first novel, "Reelwoman." He is also a graphic designer, portrait artist, photographer, sifu in Chinese martial arts, alpinist, and chess player.
David currently resides in Manhattan, NYC.
