Biography

David previously enjoyed a distinguished marketing career excelling in the production of Radio Ads, Corporate films and Dramatised Audio Children’s Stories. In 2000 he embarked on a 2nd career as an actor and trained at Birmingham School of Speech and Drama in 2002.

Since graduating David has built a growing reputation for himself in Classical & Modern theatre (including panto), Film & Audio, increasingly cast in leading roles (Eg. Shylock, Prospero). In theatre he has toured across the UK and Europe and his film work includes the USA. He has several times worked in L.A. where he played leads in film features. He is repeatedly asked back by Directors and Companies to work for them again which, as they have seen his range and flexibility, has enabled him to play a wider range of characters than what might be called his ‘central casting’.
