David wrote scripts, proposals and treatments and directed a variety of videos for several pharmaceutical companies, including Jannsen, Centocor, Savient, Endo Pharma, and Sunovian.
David wrote a series of first person essays for a Philadelphia based newspaper called the Welcomat which focused on the quirks of elementary education and family relationships.
David wrote a series of articles for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Conservation District regarding storm water management, a video script used as a teaching tool about a surgically implanted medication port, and developed a marketing support video for the Da Vinci surgical robot.
Local bands have, from time to time, requested David review new releases or albums for use on their websites or in promo material.
