He was raised and attended high school in New Hampshire where he later earned a business degree from The University of New Hampshire. While pursuing a successful career in corporate management, he realized his true passion was in acting.
Launching first into commercial modeling, soon he was booking print modeling jobs and local TV commercials. Embracing roles at the well regarded Players Ring theatre in Portsmouth, NH as well as other regional theatres only solidified David's thirst for roles in TV, film and theatre. Having studied at the renowned T. Schreiber Studio and Stella Adler Studio in New York City as well as regional acting studios in the Boston area, he set his sights on the thriving NYC television and film industry.
Landing first on several NYC based soap operas (All My Children, As The World Turns and One Life To Live) his career has been on the move ever since. David often portrays law enforcement, executive and white collar criminal types in a variety of film and television roles.

He nurtures his entrepreneurial spirit as a true Renaissance man with business endeavors in public speaking, travel, real estate, home renovation and the arts. He is also a partner in several independent film and theatre production companies with projects ongoing.
