Born in Trenton,
NJ in 1967, David began writing poetry in 1989 upon hearing voices

David also self-produces a national literary " 'zine"

Minds / Different Voices" by Virginia Aronson, which outlined
the achievements of selected artists and explored the relationship
between creativity and mental illness.
