Strategic Planning, Competitive Analysis, Writer
David specializes in developing objective-oriented strategies to assist organizations in defining and reaching their goals. He also excels at organizing complex material and analyses, and expressing them in written form; and in financial modeling and projections.
His background forms a tapestry of business, creative, and production elements, which are the basis for his work with dba. In addition to those consulting projects described elsewhere in this site, David devoted nine years to the Hollywood feature film industry, after earning his M.B.A. from Harvard University. He ultimately served as Executive Vice President of Production for Clive Davis Entertainment, a producing arrangement between the former President of Arista Records (Whitney Houston, Carlos Santana) and Tri-Star Pictures (Sony Entertainment).
His earlier music career included stints as Principal Double Bass for the Bronx Opera Company and the New York String Ensemble, and Executive Director of the latter group. He taught graphics and printing at the secondary school level as Chairman of the Graphic Arts Department for the Fieldston School.
Subsequent to his Hollywood foray, he relocated to rural New Mexico and developed a creative writing career in parallel with his consulting practice. He achieved semi-finalist status in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences screenwriting fellowship competition, and recently completed his first novella, “The Way Life Should Be.”
