David has cast over 1500 commercials for clients as diverse as Target, Burger King, Ford, Sun Trust Bank, Bounty Paper Towels, Disney, Mod's Hair (for Japan) and NY Lottery. He began his professional career as an actor in the original Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim's "Merrily We Roll Along," directed by Harold Prince. Other roles included Peter van Daan in the off-Broadway chamber musical "Yours, Anne" and Motel the Tailor in a North American tour of "Fiddler on the Roof," opposite Herschel Bernardi. After a brief stint in a theatrical agency, David became a casting assistant at Grey Advertising, where he learned the ropes of commercial casting. This led to the job at DeSeta Casting, where, in addition to commercials, he has cast two projects for Harold Prince, including the world premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Whistle Down the Wind."
