Actor - Writer - Quirky Human Being
David fell in love with theater at the tender age of 6 when he saw Peter Pan on Broadway. He loved the production and refused to leave until he could see the show again (he was promptly ejected from the theater by a disgruntled usher).
David’s first stage performance was an elementary school talent show, where he sang “I’m Flying” from Peter Pan (though he only flew in his imagination). David continued to act throughout his childhood and teenage years at various professional and community theaters, summer camp (French Woods), and his bedroom (on cold winter nights).
David auditioned for and was accepted to the acting conservatory at Boston University. During his freshman year, he became bewitched by politics and transferred to Rutgers University where he received a degree in political science (and also did some professional theater in New York and New Jersey).
David later moved to Washington, D.C., where he worked in the White House and the Senate (he really did – this is not a joke). After the adventure of a lifetime, David moved back to New York to continue to pursue performing, and has since appeared in various professional stage productions and Internet and film projects.
David was cast as the lead in his pre-school production of The Nutcracker – but was felled by a 103-degree fever. He told his mother the show must go on. She slipped a dose of Nyquil into his breakfast. (NOTE: David has never missed another performance since.)
David is a human makeup remover (during a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a woman watching his performance laughed so hard that her mascara ran).
David has never tried an illegal drug because he is high on life (and wanted to truthfully pass his government background check).
David has been interviewed about politics twice on National Public Radio (his mother called NPR suggesting he have his own show – please contact her to join this fledgling grassroots campaign).
David discusses international affairs and world events at cultural institutions such as the 92nd Street Y and the Manhattan JCC.

"Meyers' Liam matches Daphna in knowledge and reason (or unreason ability) and resonates likability and romance. You believe he loves Melody and sees her as a way out of his family - despite the character's callowness." Broadway World
"A battle of wits and wills ensues where he and [Heller] put each other through the self-esteem shredder.
...Meyers provides a dramatic slow burn and when in a cathartic moment Liam [erupts] at Daphna, it rings true. Meyers' management of his energy is an effective contrast against Heller’s hyper-activity. NY Blue Print
