About Me (and my work)

David speaking and teaching.
Sharing, teaching, talking, and telling.

Hi, I’m David—a writer, storyteller, consultant, and teacher. After witnessing the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, I quit the rat race and set out to just be happy. I now spend my time teaching Tai Chi classes, keeping fit, writing, and storytelling.

Since 1995, I have performed original stories in the United States and abroad at schools, bars, coffeehouses, clubs and festivals including the Digital Storytelling Festival and the Yukon International Storytelling Festival. I’ve also presented and/or offered classes and workshops at companies, colleges and conferences.

As a narrative practitioner, I employ an interdisciplinary approach to storytelling that incorporates writing, performing, teaching, organizing live events, collecting folklore, documentation, and facilitating narrative environments. I call this approach Applied Narrative because it draws no lines between the lessons of a classroom, the fun of a game space, and the magic of a storytelling experience.

I am available for freelance writing assignments, generating creative content, training, consulting, and speaking. Contact me.

...we asked David to come provide our creative team with some new perspectives and presentation methods... What we got from David was an elegant 2-hour training session... The result was an informed and inspired creative team that was eager to test some of these freshly learned techniques on both internal audiences and clients alike.
