David's writing career has been profoundly affected by the creative communities he has been fortunate to join at The PlayGround Experiment (PGE) and Primary Stages' Einhorn School for the Performing Arts (ESPA). During 2022, The Skeleton Rep(resents) also provided an extremely supportive and collaborative environment in which to develop the next iteration of Sundown. Also of note are the Dramatists Guild Institute, the Roundabout TheatreLab, the Seattle Playwrights Salon, the Playwrights' Center, and the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF). He is most grateful for the generosity of spirit that he has been shown and for the continuing support and encouragement of all of his theater mentors and colleagues.

If you are a writer or composer for the stage and are interested in any of these organizations, David would be happy to discuss them with you and help you connect with them. Go to Contact and drop him a line.

Although NYMF is no longer with us, many of the talented creatives who were an integral part of David's experience at NYMF are still actively making theatre.
