Howdy! I'm David – a video and motion designer.


I started out in performance and along the way picked up video. My specialty is activating live performance and immersive experiences using a wide range of 2D, 3D, realtime, and generative video. My design work lives on Broadway, Off-Broadway, internationally, in digital spaces, and on my local street corner.
    In my personal practice, I create interventions that play with public architecture, spaces, and expectations. Basically, guerrilla projection activism.
  Nowadays I’m based in NYC and I spend my spare time making a mess in my kitchen, building open-source tools for fellow creatives, and fussing over my two cats.
