SCREENWRITER

Bio

David has lived and worked in New York his whole life and currently resides in the Hudson River town of Irvington. He spent his first career as a corporate litigator defending Wall Street banks and making the world safe for Fortune 500 companies. That may explain why he loves to write stories about flawed but redeemable underdogs who fight to overcome their weaknesses while going up against entrenched, corrupt adversaries who hold the reins of power.

An accomplished storyteller in the courtroom, he now gets to make up his own facts, which he weaves into well-constructed, high-stakes stories bristling with intrigue and suspense.
