David Tuchman is a financial analyst by day and volunteer videographer by night. In between, David also volunteers around Nashville with a diverse group of local non-profits. Growing up, David loved filmmaking as a hobby and discovered his passion for telling the overlooked stories of unique people. Since then, David volunteers to make films such as those that capture the devastating realities of poverty and sex trafficking in order to promote social awareness and change.
David’s film career spans beyond this to include some professional work with The Tennessean newspaper. He also acts as the technical director at his church in Brentwood, Fellowship Bible Church. Not only does David love volunteering in the film industry, he also serves his community with his co-workers and a group of men whom he mentors at church. At work, David acted as the service coordinator for Cat Financial to provide consistent volunteer opportunities for his co-workers. Through his church, David spent six years mentoring a group of young professionals each week and volunteering with them at various non-profits.
David is motivated to consistently serve his community at work and in church because he wants to better people’s lives. David seizes every opportunity to reach out from his work and church environments in order to help local non-profits, and he loves to utilize his filmmaking skills when it comes to volunteering. David believes that when you put in volunteer work, the reward may be slow, but it will be life changing.
