Over the years In Japan David has worked literally everywhere. You name it and he’s done it!

Prior to settling in Japan David graduated from the School Of Performing Arts (made famous by the Movie & TV series Fame) he went off to Europe and studied under France’s great movement master, the late Jacque Lecoq, in Paris. At the same time he was performing in various venues around Europe.

David returned to New York City when he was 21 and was immediately scouted to go to Japan to perform his act at Japan’s Huis ten Bosch theme park in Nagasaki. He was given a one month contract but, as John Lennon sang, life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans, Japan ended up adopting David and he soon moved there on a permanent basis.
