David has worked in the entertainment industry in numerous capacities including director and director of photography, was a judge for the Emmys, and traveled for a stint as a cameraman for the World Wrestling Federation in the days of Hulk Hogan and André the Giant. He is a proud member of IATSE Local 52 film union. His debut novel Five Times Lucky is a comedy about the American penchant for chasing fame. Temple has witnessed scores of wannabes scaling the steps of celebrity. One piece of advice that he learned early on and is willing to share with the dauntless: "Be nice to the people you meet on the way up, because you will be meeting them again on your way down."
