John Mitchell, Pittsburgh used-car salesman and con-man who settled in the East Village after getting a flat tire, became New York’s foremost womanizer and a renowned patron- of- the- arts...battling the Mafia, police, fire Marshal and City Hall, with the help of his up-and-coming attorney, Ed Koch. Winning those battles with unexpected weapons, Mitchell, a self-proclaimed ghost, protected a long list of Beat writers and folk singers—artists who became iconic figures in world culture, counterculture and protest forever, from an old coal cellar he called The Gaslight Cafe.
A native New Yorker, David started acting and practicing martial arts when he was only 5 years old. He studied Kenpo for many years and received his black belt at the age of 16. As a young actor, David appeared in many commercials and TV shows. He also began training for full contact kick-boxing and turned pro at 18. He eventually became the youngest member of the W.A.K.O. full contact USA Kickboxing Team. After several years of fighting at the professional level, his hard work paid off and he became the U.S.K.B.A. World Welterweight Kickboxing Champion.
David has appeared in many prominent TV series and films, working with some of the biggest names in the business. He recently appeared as Little Tony with Ben Affleck in The Accountant. He recently wrapped Season 3 of Marvel's DAREDEVIL, playing FBI Agent Johnson, which allowed him to draw on his extensive action background. He is looking forward to switching gears and playing John Mitchell, the romantic lead in the film 116 MacDougal, which will begin production in 2019
