Hailing from Grand Rapids and Lansing, Michigan, he writes musicals.

David Quang Pham is a science dramaturg and musical writer from Wyoming, Michigan. He is the 2020-2021 Working Title Playwrights apprentice in Atlanta. TOUR, the subatomic opera, is a frequent concerted feature under Musical Theatre Factory, a finalist for 2020 Downtown Urban Arts Festival, and granted several readings. This particle physics fable is about subatomic educators and their collisional journey in the academic Accelerator. Under the Working Title Playwrights New Play Development and Dramaturgy Apprenticeship, he is developing ELLIPSES. This astrophysics epic is about the Galaxy family and their quest to undo the Big Bang. A member of ΣΠΣ, ASCAP, and the Dramatists Guild, he attained an astrophysics degree and a minor in theatre at Michigan State University. As an artistic scientist, he theorizes that science and art are not two sides of the same coin. Science and art make the coin. He spins this superposition.
