David is a retired Senior Civil Servant with a 40-year career in the Ministry of Defence. During this period he devoted his free time to acting, directing and playwriting at the the Questors Theatre in Ealing, the country's foremost non-professional theatre. After completing its two year training course, he played more than 80 roles there including Anthony and Baptista in Shakespeare's OTHELLO, James Tyrone in LONG DAYS JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, Henry II in THE LION IN WINTER and Vanya in UNCLE VANYA, which was taken by its Russian director to the Sphera Theatre in Moscow and as a writer/performer/director with Michael Green's celebrated COARSE ACTING plays, he appeared on the Edinburgh fringe, at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London and on television.

On his retirement from the civil service in 1997, David became free to work professionally, since when he has appeared in numerous theatre, film and television roles. The highlight has undoubtedly been his year with the Peter Hall company playing Adam and Corin in AS YOU LIKE IT, with Rebecca Hall and Dan Stevens (American tour) and Antonio in MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING (Theatre Royal, Bath). Theatre roles have also included Solness in THE MASTER BUILDER, the Mayor in THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR, Undershaft in MAJOR BARBARA (national tour) and Duncan/Siward in James Roose-Evans production of MACBETH at the Ludlow Festival.

Television appearances range from a guest lead in DOCTORS to a shady antiques dealer in THE BILL and David has also had leading and principal roles in several award-winning short and feature films.
