Since the world-wide release of his survivalist horror film HERE ALONE, David’s work as a screenwriter has been hailed as "suspenseful", "emotionally-driven", and "decidedly chilling”.


Working within the thriller, horror, and drama genres, David's most recent project, the neo-western BLOOD FOR DUST, starring Scoot McNairy, Kit Harington, Josh Lucas, and Stephen Dorff, held its world premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival and is debuting in Europe at the Festival du Cinéma Américain de Deauville in the fall.  

David’s film accolades include the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature, the New York Filmmaker Award from the St. Lawrence Film Festival, the Philadelphia Screenplay Festival Grand Prize, and the Bluecat Screenwriting Lab Feature Development Award. His films have earned enthusiastic reviews from The New York Times, Variety, The Village Voice, Dreadcentral, and Rue-morgue and have been official selections at dozens of domestic and international film festivals, including the Sitges Festival Internacional De Cinema Fantastic, Traverse City Film Festival, Fright Fest UK, and the Napa Valley Film Festival. His films can be found on major streaming sites such as Tubi, The Roku Channel, Amazon, RedBox, iTunes, Vudu, and other VOD providers around the globe.


In addition to his cinematic work David's comic, THE CABINET, with writer Jordan Hart and artist Chiara Raimondi, is releasing via Image Comics in 2024. He has also lectured on screenwriting and narrative film for Hollins University and The State University of New York | CCC, and was a panelist for the 2019 NYFA Playwriting/Screenwriting Fellowship Program.


David lives in western New York with his beautiful and supportive wife, Payal, and their cheerful and lovable sons, Kavi and Nilay.  He is a member of the Writers Guild of America East and is repped by Magnolia Entertainment and Paradigm Talent Agency.
