  Name:   Mr. David Lamb
Month: March 2006

New York University (NYU) Law School JD 1991
Organization: Between The Lines Productions, Inc.
Title: Vice President

David Lamb was born in Queens, New York. He grew up in Astoria Housing Projects in Astoria, Queens (where he argues, tongue in cheek, Hip Hop music really began). David graduated from Hunter College with a BA in Economics, from NYU with his JD, and from Princeton University Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs with a Masters in Public Policy.

After graduating from law school, David began working as a public finance attorney at a Wall Street firm. While practicing law, David's unique entrepreneurial spirit drove him to form a publishing company through which he published his first novel, "Do Platanos Go Wit Collard Greens?". This novel was widely hailed first for achieving critical and commercial success as a self-published work, and second for exploring the oft-ignored subject of relations between African-Americans and Latinos. In fact, the novel became the linchpin in a study-guide used by NYC's Alternative High School system.

David has been invited to speak to and has enchanted crowds at more than 100 colleges and universities across the country.

David has built on his publishing success by scripting and producing two plays, both of which have achieved critical and financial success in the New York City theater market and nationally in the college market.

Most of David's free time is spent writing, listening to jazz, and enjoying a good game of chess.
