After completing the film composers program at UCLA Extensions, under the mentoring of Don Ray, David composed and orchestrated the score for The Disney Story, a documentary of the Disney Company. After several years of scoring children’s animated videos like Donald and the Wheel, Eleanor Richman of Buena Vista Productions hired David to compose for the series Sing Me A Story With Belle.
In the mid to late 90’s, David worked with producer Michael Greenfeld at Universal Pictures, and Bob Israel at Aspect Ratio scoring feature film trailers. He composed original scores for Clockers, Dragonheart, Ed, Jerry Maguire, Golddiggers, Out of Sight, and Casino. He also orchestrated for Sesame Street Live , Happily Ever After (HBO), Rimba’s Island (Dic), Pinocchio (New Line), and written additional underscore for A Very Brady Sequel (Paramount).
David made his first leap into video game music working with game composer Jack Wall on Neopets: The Darkest Fairy (Sony).
