About Me

It’s all about me!

The oldest and most-loved son in a family of seven children, David was born in our Nation’s Capital during the second month of the International Geophysical Year (IGY). Raised on the wrong side of the tracks in Berwyn Heights, Maryland, he was put to work at a tender age steaming crabs for the family business: Phil & Nick’s Seafood Carryout.

As a young man entering Archbishop John Carroll high school in Washington DC, David was given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. Tragically, he took up the drums instead. He has since performed with ensembles ranging from jazz trio, to rock band, to symphony orchestra, served as music director for a dance theatre, and worked in radio, television, and film production.

Enough about me.
