I contracted David to do media outreach and scriptwriting for the First Annual African Entertainment Awards held this past October. David went above and beyond the call of duty. He was very easy to work with and met every deadline. He was very flexible and adapted well to my changing needs. The awards were a success in part due to the media coverage that he obtained. I will definitely contract David for future endeavors.
