Talent. It's easy to confuse the raw kind with the real kind. We're all born with some flavor of raw talent. Many people forget about their creative ability because they were told at a young age to stop wasting time dabbling with it and get serious about life. Or, like me, they may wish they had one talent and overlook the talent staring them in the face. I was born with cerebral palsy, which makes walking difficult. Yet I believed I would be judged by my talent, t my disability, so I moved from Texas to Hollywood when I was 23. Here's my story, an odyssey of finding the faith to turn my raw talent into real talent.
At age five, David helped raise a million dollars to fight cerebral palsy as The Texas Easter Seals Poster Child. Writing by nine, directing movies at seventeen, he won a national film-making award at twenty. David moved to Hollywood in 1988. He's produced more than three-hundred personal movies, and has worked for ABC, CBS and Paramount Studios. He's published nine books, including four novels, a short fiction collection, two memoirs, one anthology and a poetry collection. He lives with his wife Jo Anna in California.
