About the Author Slangman David Burke Being brought up in a multi-lingual household, David Burke used his language skills as a tour guide at Universal Studios giving tours in English, French, Italian, and sign language. His love of language inspired him to delve into the intricacies of words and lead him to become a leading author of more than 30 books on how to use and understand slang and idioms in different languages, currently used as course curriculum by Berlitz International, UCLA, Harvard University, NYU and Hewlett Packard, and even by the writers of The Simpsons to give Bart his coolness. Having been trained since the age of four as a classical pianist (along with the cello, recorder, classical guitar, harp, organ, and harpsichord), his prior career was as a composer for a variety of television shows produced by Grant Tinker. David was then asked to join the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee as their in-house composer for all their documentaries, commercials, and public service announcements. In 1999, David became known as “Slangman” to 90 million listeners in 120 countries due to his regular 5-year segment on Voice of America’s Coast to Coast. Through out the past 10 years, David Burke has been the owner and CEO of Slangman Publishing, Inc., a publishing company specializing in materials on slang and idioms. This year, David has pooled all his talents together to create Slangman’s World, a children’s TV show, currently in preproduction, which introduces children ages 2-6 to the world of foreign languages and cultures, as well as popular American expressions in an environment of music, puppetry, animation, and magic. To date, David has appeared in more than 250 national and international radio and television programs helping parents to understand their teens, including: The Jenny Jones Show, The Sharon Osbourne Show, Entertainment Tonight, CNN International, and has been a recurring guest on the KTLA Morning Show and Canada’s most popular talk show, The Vicki Gabereau Show. David was also a commentator at the 2004 Academy Awards for the BBC’s Five Live (a program broadcasting to 7 million people throughout the United Kingdom) to speak about slang used in American movies and TV shows.
