David is thrilled to join the Work Light Productions team as Director of Finance.
He was born and raised in London, UK. Upon leaving school, David started his finance career in the City of London in International Banking. He soon realized he needed to follow his passion for music so he intertwined his skills in finance with an entry into the entertainment business at Metropolis Studios in London during its early years. He is proud that he had a chance to discover his passion at a start-up which is now the leading independent recording studio in Europe. He has also worked for Jazz Summers (manager for Wham! and Lisa Stansfield) as well as Big Life Records, Management and Publishing and later, Polygram Records.
Following a visit to New York City, David knew what his next goal was – to create a life for himself in the US. After 8 years of living in the US, David obtained his green card. Inspired by his husband, who was pursuing a theatre career, David pivoted his passion for the music industry to a new-found love of theatre arts. Again, opportunity came where David could intertwine his financial background with the arts community by joining Dramatists Play Service as Accounts Manager. With a lot of hard work and commitment David eventually became the Acting President VP of Finance & Administration for Dramatists Play Service.
David is committed to “diversity and inclusivity in theatre and the arts”. He now shares his home in New Jersey, with his family and a menagerie of pets. He loves dancing around the house and sharing his love of music with his daughter.
