Hey, I'm David!

Denver, Colorado

I am a professor of film at CU Denver and also a filmmaker. I have an MFA from Brooklyn College. I have been making films since the 90's and I won a Heartland Emmy for a documentary I did called Mortal Lessons. You can see it here. Mortal Lessons

More recently I did a documentary about victims of sex trafficking called "Live Through This: victims of sex trafficking." That can be found on iTunes. Or you can see it here for free
