A child of the 1950s & 1960s, David’s parents naively sent him to Woodstock when he was 15 (a very funny story!), and his experiences there continue to influence his personal and professional and personal life in surprisingly useful ways. He was equally profoundly impacted by having been in New York when 9-11 attacks occurred. David’s first love was music. When he won his first award at age 17 (the G. Gordon Knight Award for Outstanding Musicanship), he was expected by many to make music his career. From age 10 to 21, he performed on trombone and vocally. As a trombonist, he was in classical and marching bands, classical orchestras, jazz ensembles, and performed in pit orchestra for musicals. As a vocalist, he sang in large choirs, in small ensembles (classical, pop, and barbershop quartet), as a soloist, and as a lead-role actor in musicals. He also served as vocal director and assistant conductor for a couple of musicals. Having grown up in and around New York City, David has lived in San Diego, California, since 1975. His wife Laurie is a licensed acupuncturist and artist with a permanent exhibition in San Diego (and soon in Chicago as well). They take great delight in having boundless fun with each other, with their unendingly delightful cats Isabel & Sage, and with their family and friends.
