From East London MCs to major labels, David started out by directing music videos for SONY, EMI, and UNIVERSAL.
In 2011, he worked with acclaimed photographer Rankin to help set up Rankin Film Productions (RFP). This allowed David to work across advertising, narrative filmmaking, TV, and documentary. He was credited as an Exec Producer or Producer on over 25 shorts films, many of which screened on UK TV and in international festivals (including Palm Springs, Tribeca, and the BFI London Film Festival). David was Creative Director of RFP until 2016 when he decided to focus on writing and directing.
He has directed projects for brands such as O2, PANASONIC, THE GUARDIAN and BEATS BY DRE, and for broadcasters including CHANNEL 4 and SKY ARTS.
David is passionate about working with charities and he has created artwork for charity auctions for SHELTER (tackling homelessness) and directed films for SHIFT.MS (on managing multiple sclerosis) and CALM (raising mental health awareness and suicide prevention). David has recently worked extensively in Africa with GIRL EFFECT, making content in Rwanda and Malawi that aims to tackle poverty and promote gender equality.
David has a Masters in Screenwriting from Royal Holloway University. He is represented by HUNGRY MAN for commercials and by INDEPENDENT TALENT for film and TV.
