David’s teaching methods have resulted in some pretty impressive results as evidence by his students. In my opinion, he is one of the finest modern day practitioners of Engrosser’s script.

Comments from past students

His workshop is one of the most inspiring and helpful calligraphy workshops I have joined. His detail-oriented attitude allows him to explain everything about letter forms in a very clear and precise manner.
