David's class was interesting, challenging, and intellectually stimulating. I left feeling both energized and pleasantly spent. He is exactly the kind of Acting Teacher that I benefited from having discussions with about "the craft." Direct, curious, and thorough. It's also a class that I believe is accessible to actors of all levels, from novice to professional!

I hired David to work with teen and adult actors for a feature length film I directed. The impact that David had on the actors and on the success of the film have been phenomenal. He is a brilliant teacher! One of the teen actors said that he learned more from David in six lessons than he had in dozens of summer acting camps over the years. The adult actors were equally impressed. If you get a chance to work with David, I wouldn't miss it.

David is a "one-of-a-kind" Acting Coach! I have been a professional in the industry for the last 10 years, and I attribute most of my success to David. David encouraged me to lean into my own interferences and self-consciousness in terms of acting, in order to get more comfortable with the unknown and my fears. I attribute David to my success because through this classes I was able to gain the rarest gift any acting teacher can give their student: confidence. I am a braver artist, a more present actor, and even a better person thanks to David's classes. Not only did David influence me as an actor/artist, I use his lessons every day when I teach my own Acting Classes in Chicago. I highly recommend him.

Lessons with David were absolutely amazing. He helped me come out of my shell, and not be afraid to perform in any situation. What I have retained from my lessons have and will be used in many situations to come, even outside the acting/film world. Thank you David for changing my life for the better.
