Early Childhood & Life

He was a shy kid when he started kindergarten. He would rarely interact with his peers or professors. His parents chose to homeschool him after taking note of his personality. It was also exceedingly challenging for him to keep switching schools because his father’s business duties took him to various locations.
His “social awkwardness” was so severe that his parents had to take him to a counselor to deal with his mental health difficulties. Despite being an introvert, he has always had a strong artistic talent. When he was just 3 years old, he had a significant part in the theater performance of “The Wizard of Oz.” In addition, he showed a strong interest in learning music and had a wonderful singing voice when he was younger.
He studied drama and literature in great detail and also picked up the electric guitar, piano, and trumpet. David enjoyed many benefits from being homeschooled for most of his childhood, including having enough time to satisfy his desire to perform stage plays.
As a result of his father’s work, the family frequently relocated. David spent his formative years in Texas, Taiwan, and England. In Georgia, where the family eventually made their home, David started to take his artistic endeavors extremely seriously.
His father went away when he was 16 years old. For David and his family, this was a devastating blow. David, who is quite emotional, took it very hard and began engaging in art more intensely to help him deal with this loss.
