David has been a South Bay Area-based theatre critic/reporter since 2009, writing for Examiner.com until 2012, and a journalist, theatre educator and director for more than 30 years, having been a reporter and critic for the Fresno Bee and currently a freelance reporter with Theatre Bay Area. With a plethora of journalism experience, he gets out to as many shows as possible, and is a member of both the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critic’s Circle and the American Theatre Critics Association (ATCA). With ATCA, he was elected to a seat in 2019 on the executive committee and is also co-chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, a group that is working on national initiatives to diversify criticism and expand cultural literacy to critics of the American theatre. He is also a dad chasing around his three daughters with the help of his awesome wife Tamra.

David has a B.A. in Theatre Arts from California State University, Fresno, a Master of Arts in directing from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University and is now enrolled in a second masters program in creative writing at Southern New Hampshire University. When not watching, directing, or writing about a show, he is watching boxing late on Saturday nights or rooting hard for the Oakland A’s, Golden State Warriors, San Jose Earthquakes, San Jose Sharks, FC Barcelona and the Fresno State Bulldogs.
