Overview

I have been an actor for over 30 years now with credits from televisions top rated shows such as NCIS and NCIS New Orleans and CSI Los Vegas. Film credits such as Pleasantville, Swing Kids and Stay Tuned. With series regular roles on One life to Live and Young and the Restless where I was nominated and received an Emmy for my work for Best Young Actor. I have the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. To make them stand out in front of the casting director or make their tape unique and different from the rest. Acting is my passion, and I would love to share that passion with others so they may reach their dreams and experience life as a working actor.

He is exactly what I was looking for. We are very close in personality so it was extremely easy to open up and understand what I was learning. I am more than excited to continue

David was great during his lesson with my son Kage. He helped Kage to open up and have fun. He gave great advice to both of us for moving forward, and Kage is still talking about his fun lesson. We look forward to many more!

David was authentic and fun in every acting session! I was new to the game and he knew exactly where to start me and how hard to push me. As long as he's teaching in LA I'll be taking his classes!
