David is a gentleman with a positive attitude. David is also deaf and homeless in Los Angeles. He was overjoyed to share that one of his stepdad’s relatives has a star on the Walk of Fame. It’s hard to imagine he’s sleeping on the streets near Santa Monica Blvd.

Before CHP started moving people out of encampments near the freeway, David and his trusty companion camped there. Now the duo sleeps near a park in Hollywood or close to David’s storage locker.
