David continues to read, and occasionally perform, his work at multiple venues, having been a member of Boston University's poetry collective Speak For Yourself where he opened for poets Anis Mojgani and Jon Sands.
David is active in multimedia art installations which combine visual art with the written word, collaborating with artists who adapt his work into paintings and illustrated pieces. Notably, the release show for his chapbook, Getting Up S'Only Easy for the Sunrise, saw the Custom Picture Frame Gallery in Brookline, MA cover its walls with such artistic renderings of his poetry. David continues to explore poetry's visual adaptation and is currently experimenting with film making.
David's chapbook Getting Up S'Only Easy for the Sunrise is available on Amazon for the low price of $8.99 and makes a great gift for any occasion.
