David debuted on the Seattle musical stage as Mr. Lundquist in Seattle Light Opera’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music.  Subsequently, he appeared as Freddy in Metropolitan Musical Theater’s production of My Fair Lady, as the tenor among five talents in the Crepe De Paris’ summer cabaret production of By Sondheim, and as the Minstrel in Tacoma Little Theater’s production of Once Upon a Mattress.  For four years, he performed as a soloist and tenor section leader in Scott Warrender’s comedy choirs, The Washingtonians. Until Crepe De Paris closed, he appeared frequently in cabaret shows, including A Little Broadway and The Boys Do the Girls. Recordings of both cabaret shows were made with his accompanist, Martin Buff. 

Before moving to Seattle, David performed leading roles in opera and musical comedy on both the east and west coasts.  Among his favorite musical theatre and operatic roles are Ravenal in Showboat, Tony in West Side Story, Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, and Figaro in The Barber of Seville

David has also appeared in non-musical roles.  Among his favorites were Petruchio in The Taming of the Shrew and John Proctor in The Crucible.  Most recently, he appeared as Count Orsini-Rosenberg in Bainbridge Performing Arts' production of Amadeus, recognized as the "best play of 2016" by the South Sound Critics' Association.

Over the last twenty-five years, David has been a professor of Constitutional Law at the Seattle University School of Law.  During that time, his professional energy was largely taken up by teaching and publishing books and articles. Among those works are The Death of Discourse, Trials of Lenny Bruce, Mania, On Dissent and Robotica: Safeguarding the Rights of Speech with Machines.  Now that his academic career is fully established, he is eager to return to the stage much more frequently.

David lives in West Seattle.
