Although David is completely fluent in English and Spanish, his first language is Music, which he's been speaking since the age of three. First came the violin, then the classical guitar and before he was out of his teens David had performed with jazz, Latin and rock 'n’ roll bands from intimate cabarets to screaming concert arenas. Then, at the ripe age of nineteen, with hundreds of hours of live performance behind him, he finally decided to get serious about music.
His diverse formal training began with classical guitar and music composition in Mexico at Universidad de las Américas, continued at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba, then to Crane School of Music in Potsdam, New York, and Concordia University in Montreal. Then finally to Vancouver B.C where his nerdy, gadget-tech-boy nature produced a diploma in Audio Engineering.
A dual citizen of Canada and Mexico, David is currently a resident of Vancouver, B.C. where he writes music for film, television and commercials.
