About Me

Hello! I’m David.

I am a web developer, writer, photographer, multimedia publisher, and author of This Is Not a Confession, published by Awst Press in 2016. From August 2016 through December 2021, I was the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Atticus Review.

My work has appeared in many publications, including The Missouri Review Miller Aud-Cast, The Nervous Breakdown, Awst Press, The Rappahannock Review, Crate, and others.

Many of the photos I take are of my dogs. I've discovered that living with canines can help you be a better human.

I grew up in Texas, but currently live and write in Philadelphia. I believe we are much more than the stories we tell about ourselves, but that doesn't stop me from trying to put it down in words, anyway.
