Bio

 

David is an American director and photographer living in the UK.

He was born in New York City in 1986 and raised in Poughkeepsie, a small city further upstate. After graduating high school David moved away to Ireland and found work as a window cleaner. He moved back to New York and got married in 2005. In the years following he worked a number of factory and retail jobs until he finally landed his first freelance photography job for a Gannett newspaper. After his daughter was born in 2009 he and his wife moved to the UK.

Since 2012 David has been directing music videos and has created over 40 album covers across dozens of labels. He's currently developing a documentary called Blinko (about Nick Blinko of Rudimentary Peni). In his spare time he runs a small record label and photobook imprint called Chloride City
