Howdy! I'm David, let’s make something new.

I've been fortunate to work as a video designer and animator with talented folks on Broadway, Off-Broadway, internationally, in digital spaces, and on my local street corner.
My specialty is designing dynamic media for live performance and immersive experiences. In my personal practice, I create interventions, media, and performances that play with public architecture, spaces, and expectations.I started out in performance art and multimedia theatre, and along the way, I picked up After Effects.
Since then, I’ve been fusing the immediate potential of performance with the fluidity and finesse of animation. Nowadays I’m based in NYC and I spend my time helping tell new stories, building open-source tools for fellow creatives, and eating too much pizza.
