David O'Connell specializes in prosthetic application and painting, possessing skills that could potentially take his creations to a level never seen on Face Off. During his time in ROTC during school, he learned that "on time is late" and this discipline allowed him to lead a team of 11 artists in completing makeup for 400 people in four hours nightly at Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights. For David, special effects, is a way of life – to the point where breakfast at grandma's can turn into an impromptu life-casting session.
