David originally trained as an actor at the California Institute of the Arts where he first performed voiceover in the title role of 'The Mad Greek Chef' directed by future 'Toy Story 2' animator Ethan Hurd. David was a visiting scholar studying Shakespeare as literature at Oxford University during his undergraduate studies.

He completed a PhD scholarship in Theatre History and currently has two books of his own in print. Most recently 'The Marowitz Compendium' was published in Europe (Ibidem Press) and America (Columbia University Press) in April 2021. Glenda Jackson CBE two-time Academy Award winning Best Actress and longtime Member of Parliament was kind enough to write the forward for the book. In London's West End David debuted first as an actor in 'The Comedy News Hour' at the Leicester Square Theater and most recently he directed Chekhov's masterpiece 'Three Sisters' upstairs at the Arts Theater. In 2012 it was confirmed that David was the first American to direct at the historic Rose Theater, Bankside where the plays of Shakespeare and Marlowe were originally performed.
