Dave began his foray into improv in acting classes as a child at the Pittsburgh Playhouse in Oakland. He dove head first into theater and the stage, performing in the sold-out run of Over the Tavern at the Pittsburgh Public Theater during their 1996/1997 season. Realizing his career was over, he wouldn’t return to the stage until 2013 as a member of the Steel City Improv Theater house team “Panic”. He then performed on various wonderful teams such as “Midseason Replacement”, “Kill Screen”, and is also a current member of the Arcade Comedy Theater short form house team “Game Shark”. When he’s not on stage, Dave loves to eat and you can follow along on his adventures on his sporadically updated food blog, David the Gastronome.
