David was a film history buff long before he graduated from the University of Iowa film school in the early 1970s and started his career at Warner Brothers. He has worked as a film and Avid editor on many TV movies, pilots, and series over the last 20 years, for major studios including The Walt Disney Company and 20th Century Fox. Special Projects have included editing two of the CircleVision films and EPCOT documentaries for Disney theme parks. Some of his more notable editing credits are Northern Exposure, Dangerous Minds, and three Alien Nation TV movies. His most intensive and personal project to date, Cinerama Adventure, marks David's debut as director and writer. While serving as historical consultant to Paul Allen's Seattle Cinerama Theatre restoration project, David is working in cooperation with Pacific Theatres (owners of Cinerama Inc. and its assets) in efforts to preserve and promote the Cinerama legacy.
