David Cohen Vice President, Round Table Companies

David Cohen began his journey with Writers of the Round Table, Inc. in 2007 as Director of Publishing and Client Relations. Since then, he has taken on roles his big-picture perspective was made for: VP and Chief Strategist. An award-winning producer, David understands what it takes to actualize a film (and a company!) from all angles. After appearing in dozens of films, commercials, and television shows, David graduated from Rollins College in 2002 with a degree in theatre. Eager to put his entrepreneurial spirit to use, he founded 1421 Productions, producing and co-producing more than 17 films ranging in format from DV to HD to 35mm. He produced Gretchen Brettschneider Skirts Thirty with Elevation 9000 Films, winning the Best Short Film Award at the San Diego Film Festival in 2003, among other awards. David also launched LA Film Lab Entertainment, a filmmakers’ consortium, with which he developed and produced two original screenplays, formed and taught courses on the business of production and artistry, and directed a documentary for The Make-A-Wish Foundation© of greater Los Angeles as a wish granted for a child; Fox News featured the film’s premiere. Venturing away from the film world in style, his last project was working with Academy- and Emmy Award-nominated director Peter Spirer, producing the documentary Notorious B.I.G. Bigger Than Life, with Rugged Entertainment (released by Image Entertainment [DISK] in September 2007). The same year, David was featured in the book Millennial Leaders as an emerging leader in Generation Y, and had the pleasure of speaking on a panel at the 2007 International Coaching Federation (ICF) conference in Long Beach, CA. Though it’s David’s big-picture perspective that helps him develop new opportunities for RTC, he has no problem applying his eye to everyday details: he’s obsessed with wine (he has spreadsheets), coffee (grinds his own beans every morning) and seeking out really good TV shows. He currently resides in his hometown of Jacksonville, FL, with his incredible wife, Erin, their rad son, Abraham, and two dumb boxers, Bella and Charlie. Oh, and he also loves bacon. Loves bacon.
