David is currently in Tokyo, Japan

The son of modest immigrant parents, David was born and raised in a small, blue-collar town in the United States where he grew up captivated by stories and imagery of faraway places. Fueled with a thirst for traveling, he attended public schools, and then college, where his lifelong passion for documentary work began.

Backpacking and working as a photojournalist left an incredible impact on him as he experienced different cultures and people. He witnessed poverty, the underprivileged, corruption, and the dereliction of a working social system for the people and their communities.

Inspirations from traveling and his love for storytelling became instrumental in his decision towards making a difference in the world as a volunteer, a photographer, a cinematographer, and a filmmaker. David strives to use his experience to create innovative channels where brands and humanitarian work can coincide to influence positive change in our communities, and around the world.
