About Me

ProductionHUB Pro100 2018 Winner - David is an award-winning cinematographer and producer based in the Bay Area. He works on a wide range of commercial, documentary and narrative projects. Originally a New Yorker, he began making movies in his backyard before studying at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. He then earned a Masters degree in Government and spent the next several years budgeting billions for the White House and managing massive technology projects for the City of New York. He eventually made his way back to his true passion of visual storytelling.

Most recently, he lensed and produced an award-winning feature documentary, KIM SWIMS, that is currently screening at film festivals around the world and is set for a wide release in October 2018.

David's interest in documentary storytelling has allowed him to shoot for major news outlets across the globe including ABC News, BBC, Al Jazeera and The Washington Post. He has also lensed projects for companies such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Workday and many other major brands.

I shoot on Arri Alexa, RED Epic, Sony FS7, and Canon C100/300 camera packages.


I have been in the industry since 2010.

David is an excellent DP/Director and one of my favorite people to have on set. I'm a big fan of his work ethic, his attitude and his talent to capture both scripted and unscripted moments.
