David Madison was born in Queens, New York and raised on Long Island.  His heritage is a mix of Eastern European.  David began his acting career fifteen years ago while attending Nassau Community College.  At first, David viewed acting as a means to achieving an Associates’ Degree in Liberal Arts.  His acting teacher, Victor Abravaya, steered him in a different direction and exposed David to the joy and sense of accomplishment that comes from acting.  David continued to pursue acting with Bob Einkel’s scene study class.
As David’s drive to act grew, he accepted an invitation to join The Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York.  It is with this once in a lifetime opportunity did David delve full-time into the acting program. Strasberg exposed David to the training techniques of Michael Margotta, Bill Balzac and Penny Du Pont.  Following his Strasberg training, David accepted another once in a lifetime opportunity to sign with and model for Ford Models in Los Angeles.  David was then booked as one of 17 models searched for in the U.S. to model for ‘Magic’ one of the largest conventions held in Vegas.  Following this fun and exciting experience, David then put his focus back into the acting where his passion is, and focused his skills under the guidance of renowned coach of Emmy Rossum, Flo Salant Greenberg in New York.
David began a working actor in off-off Broadway shows, such as the Blood Brothers ensemble and the lead role in Cinderella at the Cultural Arts Playhouse.  He booked his first principal role as supporting actor in ‘Finding Forester’, directed by Gus Van Sant.  David appeared in his first star role in the award-winning dramatic feature film, ‘The Place Between Heaven’ & Hell, directed by Craig Horowitz. David appeared in a principal role in ‘An American Cyborg,’ directed by Chris Varley.  David also appeared as a supporting actor on the set of ‘Sex & The City’ in the Critical Condition episode as well as a feature on ‘The Sopranos’ and a feature on ‘The Preacher’s Wife.’
In 2004, David returned to school, the State University of New York at Old Westbury, in order to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.  David believed that the parallel between psychology and acting would serve him well as a working actor.  David became a student leader serving the student body as President of the Honor Society, Chief Justice of the Pre-law Society and Vice-President of the Psychology Club.  In 2005, while finishing this degree, David was hired by Susan Stroman to do a kissing scene in ‘The Producers Movie.’  David graduated his B.A. cum laude in 2006.  He incorporates his psychology and acting skills to better captivate audiences through expressionism and emotional character portrayals.
In 2007, David joined an acting group, Del Arte, which raised money for charities such as St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
In 2008, David profiled with John Dapolito in New York, a renowned theme acting coach after attending an AWG (Actors Where are you Going!) Seminar.  John Dapolito opined that David’s core theme is the father/son mentoring relationship.  David’s style easily transcends into the teacher/student, coach/athlete themes.
In 2009, David focused on studying and working out his theme.
In 2013, David is one of the most interesting and out-going Mcs out there.
