David was raised in Seattle, WA. He is an actor, filmmaker, and educator. He studied acting at Seattle University, and worked in the local theater market between 2000-2013. He is passionate about classical texts, and his resume boasts many colossal roles from Shakespeare's canon (Caliban, Leontes, Mark Antony, Cassius, King Henry). In 2011, he began earnestly pursuing work in front of the camera, and has since booked many roles in films (Narco Hitman, Bad Samaritan, The Device, Shadowed), television (Z Nation, Grimm, and Thunderballs), commercials, corporate videos, and web-series (The Scottish Play). In 2013, through their company, Mighty Tripod Productions, David and his partner Angela DiMarco, produced Trauma, an award winner at the 2013 Seattle 48 Hour Horror Film Project. The film went on to screen at Hollywood Horror Fest, STIFF, Columbia Gorge International Film Festival, and Hollyshorts Film Festival. In 2015, they produced The Cost of Things, which garnered David a Best Actor award. In 2016, their film One Step Too Far won Best of the Fest at the Seattle 48 Hour Film Project. Their first feature length film, Narco Hitman, premiered at the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival, and garnered a distribution deal. Their second feature film, The Parish, with David directing, starring Angela DiMarco and Bill Oberst, Jr., will release in 2019. David teaches acting for the camera and is an acting coach with Mighty Tripod Acting Studio. His clients have booked roles in critically acclaimed independent films (Captain Fantastic) on TV (Grimm, The Librarians, Z Nation, Everything Sucks!), and in local web-series (Automata). He lives in Port Orchard, WA with his wife and best friend, Angela DiMarco and their fuzzy four-legged canine companion, Bruno.
