Between the ages of twelve and sixteen, David experienced a series of several life-altering paranormal events.

In 2003, David started a paranormal meet-up group in Omaha, Nebraska. The popularity of the group quickly led to the formation of Paranormal Research and Investigative Studies Midwest (PRISM). As of 2018, PRISM Paranormal Research is comprised of fifteen teams worldwide.
David currently works as the Director of PRISM South Florida and has made several TV appearances in both the United States and Latin America.
