Ed Davidson was born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut. He moved to San Francisco in 1967 and attended Sonoma State University in the early seventies where he studied art history, literature, classical music and opera. After college he traveled throughout Asia and Europe for nine months, seeing much of the art and sculpture that he had studied in school. He eventually returned to San Francisco, where he resides today.
Over the years, Davidson has written several screenplays and a stage play. PRIMO: a stage play was originally published in book form and later converted to an audiobook with an ensemble cast. In PRIMO, he attempts to illuminate the darkness that lingers in the human soul to an emerging generation.
