About me:

David's leading role on stage in “Punching Horses” was postponed due to lockdown but will return in due course. David also co-stars in the feature films “Lair” (starring Oded Fehr) and ”Riptide” both of which had their premieres cancelled at Cannes and Shetland Festival respectively. To fend off the lockdown blues David self-shot and starred in the short film comedy “Fiends with Benefits”. Which has now been selected for 12 film festivals and David has received 2 Best Actor Nominations for his role.
