David's work blends surreal and visually arresting images with a narrative-driven sensibility. Born and raised in Southern California, David discovered filmmaking while studying video editing at a community college film program. Initially David gravitated towards post-production, primarily experimenting in visual effects and 3D animation. While working as a film editor and VFX artist, David got his start directing music videos for Los Angeles underground artists Blu & Flying Lotus in 2011. In the years since he's gone on to collaborate with Vince Staples, The Weeknd, Skrillex, James Vincent McMorrow, Michael Kiwanuka and Travis Scott. In commercials David has worked with brands such as Havana Club Rum, Puma, Fox Sports and GQ. His most recent Jordan 'Unite' campaign is the perfect blend of sports, music and culture featuring artists and influencers such as NAS, Ghetto Gastro, Edison Chen and Teyana Taylor.
