Born and raised in Rochester, New York, David is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music with a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Piano Performance and Contemporary Media. At the age of 5 he began playing by ear on his grandfather’s old beaten upright player piano. A two-time consecutive winner of DownBeat Magazine’s Student Music Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Jazz Vocalist. Before moving to New York City in 04 to star in his first off-Broadway debut at Birdland Jazz Club in “Our Sinatra," he performed extensively in Rochester along with the RPO @ Eastman Theater.
Making some noise in New York City although never heard above the taxi horns and subway cars, nonetheless he still finished 2nd runner up at the 1st Young Artist Vocal Competition held in the famous Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel. David decided to leave his jazz roots while continuing to hone in on his craft and expand his repertoire, making the move to Texas performing tributes to the music of Billy Joel, Frank Sinatra, Elton John and Paul McCartney.
In August of 07, David found himself in Las Vegas, where he quickly caught the eye of talent agent/entertainer, Van Walraven, of "Dueling Pianos 2go" and "Counterpoint Entertainment, Inc."
Since then he's been booked throughout the dueling piano circuit including Las Vegas in the Bar at Times Square at NY NY Casino, and is currently being booked on Holland America Cruise Line. He is extremely excited on this new chapter in his life and looks forward to sailing full speed ahead into the future.
