David has been acting since the age of 11. Since then he has been part of various local theater companies such as Idaho Shakespeare Festival, Homegrown Theater, Green Zoo Arts Collective, and Alley Repertory Theater. Spring Garden marks David’s first venture into film from the stage and he is ecstatic to have the opportunity to bring his craft to the camera. The experience inspired David to attend a Film Acting program at Stella Adler Art of Acting Studio in L.A this last summer. He plans to finish up his degree at Boise State University next year, earning a B.A. in performance and has been offered to return to Los Angeles for Stella Adler’s two year Acting Conservatory upon Graduation. He wants to thank his parents for supporting him every step of the way and his cat for giving him someone to snuggle at night.
