David discovered that he was a magician at the age of seven, and has since spent over 20 years trying to figure out just what that means. He has created five original theatrical magic productions, including Magic Outside The Box, The Adventure to the Imagi NationCerebral Sorceryand the Creative Spirit Seance.

His performances combine magic with storytelling, comedy, philosophy, surrealism, and that which cannot be defined, to create original shows of magic unlike anything you have experienced before. He regularly shares his unique style of magic at theaters, museums, galleries, and festivals across the United States.

He has authored eight manuscripts related to magic and illusion, including Daydreams, Borderland State, and Imagining the Imagination, and was previously the editor and publisher of Behind The Smoke and Mirrors – A journal devoted to magic and creativity
