David is third-generation in the entertainment and lighting business. His grandfather was a gas man at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City, when the footlights used gas for illumination. His grandmother was a Ziegfeld Girl during the 1930s, appearing in a number of Vaudeville shows of the era. David’s father was a lighting consultant and worked with Jackie Gleason – “the great one” – among other entertainers.

He has worked on projects that have received the “International Illumination Awards of Merit and Excellence.” Many of his lighting projects have been published in a variety of lighting publications, including a number of which appeared on the cover of “Lighting Design and Application”.
