David has been involved in sound recording from the age of 14, when he first stepped into a recording studio in London. Since then, he has always been fascinated by the medium of sound. At age 20 while working for a small film company in London and studying sound acoustics and dynamics at the North London Polytechnic University, he was thrust into production audio recording when the scheduled sound mixer fell ill just days before a location shoot in Norway. Presented with a Nagra, a time-code slate and a boom mic by the director he went on to record several documentaries for the company both in the UK and abroad. After a 12-year hiatus from film life, he returned to his craft in Los Angeles in 1996. Working with several sound mixers he became an indispensable boom operator and utility on commercials, documentaries and short films. In 2001 he began in earnest to work solely as a sound mixer and by 2002 landed his first major motion picture. The Haunted Mansion starring Eddie Murphy. After 10 years working in Los Angeles, David moved to New Orleans to seek better opportunities in Feature Films. From 22 Jump Street through The Big Short his reputation grew. Award nominations for Deepwater Horizon added to his repertoire. Now with such great movies and TV dramas such as Greyhound and Your Honor he continues to work and contribute to the industry as one of the premier sound mixers today.
