While in college at CSU pursuing a degree in sociology, Dave traveled to Kenya and Brazil. After he graduated, he discovered theater. Dave first started working as a mime in Charleston SC, and was a founding member of the Art Bar Players, an improv sketch comedy group. In his 23 years as a performer, Dave has had some great roles, including Dillard Nations Foxfire, Renfield in Dracula, and Prospero in The Tempest. Dave has always had a passion for Shakespeare. He has played such timeless roles as Antony in Julius Caesar and King Lear in King Lear. He is also no stranger to multiple roles. In a single production of Macbeth, he played Mac-Duff, Duncan, the Drunken Porter, the Doctor, and one of the apparitions, all while directing the witches and creating special effects. He has been everything from Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, to background performers, approaching each role with the same verve and drive. To do more sketch comedy with the Perch Comedy Troupe, Dave moved to Charlotte, where he still resides, working on various projects on all sides of the stage and the camera. Dave’s film work leans toward the independent horror circuit, usually playing villains or killers. Dave is used to applying his own prosthetics and considers it a major part of his character development. He has created such roles as Cree in Devil’s Crossing, Joe Mark Brown in Hell Block 13, and Billy Hall Carver in Carver, which was described as a horror splatter spectacular. Dave is proud to say that he has died in several interesting and unique ways. Dave is SAG eligible and a proud member of IATSE local 322.
