I had the pleasure, honor and responsibility to meet, mentor and teach David during his participation in the ArtsConnection, NY School of Circus Arts and the Harbor School
of the Arts programs. His natural talent and acquired skill abilities in the Circus Arts was recognized and applauded. I was thrilled to reconnect with him via FB. He will be remembered for his infectious smile and unique sense of humor. RIP, dear former and cherished student.

David and I shared some special times at the Big apple Circus School in the early 80’s. We then transitioned to Harbor JHS for the performing Arts. There were about 10 of us who were the ground breakers of this program intergrating into Harbor....Although I had lost touch over the years we will always have the special bond being in the circus school. Rest In Peace my brother.

David was my childhood friend and my first boyfriend. I love him dearly.

One memory of us playing Michael Myers in the house. I was hiding in the closet and this crazy boy finds me and stabs in the eye with a damn pencil. Almost took my eye out.

Running and escaping all over Central Park as kids.

As teenagers, hiding in the 1390 hallways to go make-out and do things we shouldn't be doing lol.

Baptizing my daughter.

I love you so much David. I hate that I didnt get to see you in so many years but I feel grateful that we still chatted and had a relationship as adults.
