Have you ever thought about all the stories that took place inside your home before you lived there? Or better yet, the untold history inside the walls of legendary Hollywood estates?
David and his company, LA House Histories, create privately commissioned coffee table books that uncover these stories for homeowners. He has chronicled many of LA’s greatest historic estates, including those once owned by Frank Sinatra, Shirley Temple, director Cecil B. DeMille, Marlene Dietrich, and more. His incredible work has been profiled in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, the Hollywood Reporter, and Architectural Digest.
In this online experience, David will share captivating stories, rare photographs, and never-before-seen items that offer a glimpse into the lifestyles of some of Golden Age Hollywood’s greatest names.

The professionally-designed books, which typically span 250 pages, are one-of-a-kind commissions not sold to the general public. LA House Histories also creates books for historic homes throughout the United States, and researches historic properties for real estate brokers, architects, and interior designers.
