David’s journey as a storyteller includes time spent in the Marine Corps, riding rescue squad, earning a Mechanical Engineering degree and a career in the heavy mechanical construction industry. He calls this the Information Gathering Phase of the journey.

David then went into the Incubator Phase when he entered the Master of Arts in Storytelling Program at East Tennessee State University. He emerged with a wealth of life experience and an understanding of the power of story and deep respect for the oral tradition.

Using a unique conversational style of storytelling, David deliverers the wisdom of the old folktales, and the universal truths of the human experience all flavored with wit, humor and an ample supply of joy!
