[learn_more caption=”Bios”] David has been acting professionally in Seattle since 2000, and his work is critically acclaimed (David is a three time winner of the Seattle Times Footlight Award for Stellar Acting – 2002, 2009, and 2012. He also received the 2012 Gypsy Rose Lee Award). His work in front of the camera began in earnest in 2010, and since then he has worked frequently in the medium. David began his training at Seattle University, where he developed his skills as a physical performer and comic actor, working in masque, and on broad, farcical plays. When in college, he also discovered the joy of performing Shakespeare. Since graduation, he has continued his training, working with a host of other exceptional teachers, learning about the craft and exploring performance and character development though a variety of techniques (Meisner, Method, Viewpoints, Suzuki, Classical Text Work). He is a passionate advocate for the northwest actor, and his dedication to the craft and elevation of the Seattle film actor is unparalleled. Credits Include: Z Nation Season 4, Bad Samaritan starring David Tennant, Paralytic, The Scottish Play, Chronoception, The Device, Super Secret, A Bit of Bad Luck starring Cary Elwes.

The Industry is always changing, so it’s only natural that the market changes along with it. We teach students how to stay informed and current in the NW. Seattle is a smaller market, but NW actors are still competing with LA actors. At Mighty Tripod Acting Studio, David and Angela stay connected to current Industry trends, and have built relationships with all of the area’s casting directors and talent agents. We are also producers and working actors, so we can share the wisdom gleaned from our experiences as we travel along the Actor’s Path.
We look forward to working with you!
~ David and Angela
