Getting Started in Music.
David got started with music when he was 9 years old, first playing guitar and then gradually incorporating some piano as well. As he remembers, he wasn’t as proficient on either instrument as he would have liked, and eventually gave up playing all together at one point. By the time he was in his early 20s, however, David picked up the instruments again to write and record music as a hobby.
His dabbling became much more than that when he landed a contract with Universal Records as a songwriter and arranger. It was around the same time he actually began recording and mixing as well, mostly in an effort to achieve the sounds he wanted and wasn’t able to get elsewhere/from anyone else.
At that point David realized he not only enjoyed, but had knack for, the recording and mixing craft—much more so than his songwriting/arranging “day job.” He threw himself into recording and mixing, learning as much as he could before having a couple of remixes which gave him the opportunity to call mixing a career.
Pivotal Projects in David’s Career
Early on, the aforementioned remixes for Ladytron and Felix Da Housecat were very popular at the time, giving David the confidence that he could mix projects other people would enjoy. In addition to mixing those, he was also able to layer in his own
Another big career step for David was working with Pietro Foresti mixing and mastering all his projects, and countless productions for Virgin Radio. Many of Foresti's artists were signed by both major and indie labels, getting radio play, headlining festivals, touring with A-list artists, giving David the possibility of getting his skills and talent noticed by the music industry worldwide.

Most recently, MC Solaar’s Geopoetique was a major moment in David’s career as a mixing engineer.
