David is an attorney, writer, and filmmaker. David conceived and co-produced The Gun Shop, an Emmy-nominated, glowingly reviewed single-episode documentary which premiered primetime on the UK Channel 4’s Cutting Edge series and then played worldwide. David’s award-winning short films have played internationally, including Cannes Short Film Corner, Italy’s Capalbio International Short Film Festival (Best of Capalbio), and 2015 Los Angeles Independent Film Awards (finalist best screenplay). He has several feature and TV scripts, which have all placed extremely well in top script competitions but have not been produced.

As a practicing attorney, David worked both as a litigator and served as legal counsel to Vermont’s Governor Howard Dean, M.D. He consults with businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies on mission, internal culture, and complex problem solving. David ski patrolled at Stowe Mountain for 22 years, and in addition to screenwriting and filmmaking, for 20 years David wrote a monthly column about life for central Vermont newspapers. He lives in Stowe, Vermont.
