David Anaxagoras writes tales of friendship and adventure for kids and their grown-ups. He is the creator and co-executive producer of Amazon Prime Video’s magical coming-of-age series Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street which the New York Times called “smart and charming” and Variety said was “genuinely clever“. In 2016 David was nominated for a WGA Award for Outstanding Writing for his episode “Gortimer vs. the Relentless Rainbow of Joy”. The series went on to win multiple awards from the WGA, Humanitas, and Parent’s Choice Foundation.

After Gortimer wrapped its planned three seasons, David joined the writing team on the Netflix animated adventure series Glitch Techs.

David is a graduate of UCLA’s MFA screenwriting program and occasionally teaches screenwriting online. For the last several years David has served on the judging committee of the Humanitas Prize for Children’s TV. Prior to his writing career, David taught preschool and has a BS in child development.

As the creator of Amazon’s first live-action children’s TV series, David has been profiled in the Orange County Register and the California Sunday Magazine. His interview with UCLA professor and author Neil Landau is featured in Neil’s book, TV Outside the Box: Trailblazing in the Digital Television Revolution

David was born and raised in southern California. He collects comic books and 80s vinyl, and takes occasional stabs at playing a musical instrument.
