David Charpentier has a Master's Degree in Architecture from the University of North Carolina Charlotte. His thesis work involved a discourse on the relationship between cinema and architecture. He is currently earning a MFA in Film Production at Boston University. He has worked for several architecture firms and independent production companies over the years, but his passion for writing and interests in spatial dynamism has led him to write for PopMatters and pursue cinematography. He also likes to travel, ski, go to concerts and try new foods--if only he could afford to do those things. No kids, one lovely wife, two cats and a whole lot student loans.
