« One word: Integrity. I like one phrase that David came up with and can explain in detail if called to - he is a wordsmith. That phrase is "never compromise". He brings that expectation of excellence to all he does in teaching and media. I have also seen David practice another set of useful skills, that ability to still himself and really hear what the other person is saying so that he can reach them effectively. The ability to rephrase what he wants understood until he can tell he has reached his audience is also a very good quality in a teacher - rather then repeat himself if he is not reaching someone he will find a way to use an analogy or come at it from a different perspective until he can tell that it is getting through successfully. The best teachers I have met in my life can do this. Finally, because he has real talent in both his media and artistic endeavors, David can appreciate and nurture real talent in others. »

David's resume

I won 3 Los Angeles Comedy Awards 2009 - 2010 - 2012 in the voice/production category for voice over and sound production on 4 year long international ad campaigns promoting the latest products from New Zealand's Weta Workshop - Collectibles from Lord of The Rings to District 9, The Hobbit and Dr Grordbort's Graphic Novels to name a few.

David,

I wish to express how much I had enjoyed the radio play of "Victory." I was laughing out loud in the car as I drove to and from work. The little boy’s voice takes the cake. Sterling stuff! And a tribute to the creativity of your team of audio performance experts.

Sir Richard Taylor
Weta Workshop, New Zealand

Also... Work for Jim Henson on the New Netflix Show "The Dark Crystal"

How awesomely beautiful and amazing David – this would be my greatest dream to work on this remake so good on you and how cool to get to do this. Your voice is perfect! I wear my Dark Crystal T-shirt at least once a week!

Cheers,

Sir Richard Taylor
Weta Workshop, New Zealand

One word: Integrity. I like one phrase that David came up with and can explain in detail if called to - he is a wordsmith. That phrase is "never compromise".
He brings that expectation of excellence to all he does in teaching and media.

I have also seen David practice another set of useful skills, that ability to still himself and really hear what the other person is saying so that he can reach them effectively. The ability to rephrase what he wants understood until he can tell he has reached his audience is also a very good quality in a teacher - rather then repeat himself if he is not reaching someone he will find a way to use an analogy or come at it from a different perspective until he can tell that it is getting through successfully. The best teachers I have met in my life can do this.

Finally, because he has real talent in both his media and artistic endeavors, David can appreciate and nurture real talent in others.
