David is a native of Squaw Valley, California, where he grew up enjoying the great outdoors.

He is the product of a ground-breaking ski film that brought his actor-father to the mountains where he met his stunt-double-skiing mother.

A true product of his parents, David inherited a joy of athletics and the arts and has grown up to be an adept multi-sport athlete and talented actor. 

Undaunted by a challenge, David walked on to Cal Berkeley’s Division-1 crew program, and won a National Championship in his novice year, later becoming a captain of the team.

Over his tenure, he competed in domestic and international regattas, and was invited to compete for a spot in the   United States Under-23 championship boat. 

It was his passion for the stage, though, that ultimately drew David away from the West coast and to New York City where he’s actively pursuing an acting career on stage and in film. 

In addition to acting, David is a certified personal trainer, both in the La Palestra method as well as with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. 
He also coaches high school rowing in New York City, working with adolescents, adults and para-athletes.  He specializes in bringing his rowing expertise to his training paradigm, designing programs and movements that challenge the entire body, while also prioritizing longevity and enjoyment.  He  has a passion for working with both adults and kids.
