Meet David, a Greenpoint Barber Living With Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder which is characterized by multiple motor tics and at least one vocal tic.

Sudden movements are mostly unavoidable, but David, a barber from Greenpoint’s Tomcats Barbershop doesn’t let Tourettes get in the way of his excellent work.

After being diagnosed with Tourette syndrome at age 23, David learned how to overcome his constant twitches and can now be found at Tomcats barbershop.
