David Beck Biography

Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, David has been devoted to creating art his whole life. A classically trained pianist from the age of eight and the president of his high school Thespian Society, David ventured out to New York to pursue acting on scholarship at Marymount Manhattan College, graduating magna cum laude. New York has been his home base ever since, even though he is deeply grateful for his Midwestern upbringing.

David is at home in the theatre, appearing in nearly 40 productions in New York as well as throughout the country, ranging from Shakespeare and Brecht to daring new works by playwrights such as Albert Innaurato and Cory Conley. He has worked professionally with Tony winners Jack Hofsiss and Randy Graff, as well as Tony nominee Marla Schaffel. He has studied under the tutelage of such renowned artists as Kathleen Turner, Fay Simpson, and Sabra Jones.

Recently, David has produced his own work in film. He wrote, co-produced, acted in, and composed the score to the short film For Francis, currently being invited to film festivals. He received such positive response from the industry that he immediately conceived, wrote, and acted in another short film The Exalted, which had its first preview screening in September. His first feature, Spring Street, is currently in development.

As an actor, David has impressed directors with his versatility. He has played everything from a concerned working class father, to a suicidal lover, to a sexy young priest, to an imporverished man with autism.

In his spare time, he records audio books for the blind at the New York Public Library and enjoys unwinding with his dog Mickey.
