ABOUT

DAVID PALADINO

Originally from Chicago, David is a multi-award winning actor who has been called “extraordinary” and “powerful” by the LA Times and NY Times respectively.

David didn’t take the most direct route to acting…although he secretly pined for the stage, he used his high school and collegiate years to focus on being a ‘star’ athlete. After getting a degree in business, he spent the next few years doing accounting work in Los Angeles. David’s buddy then introduced him to an acting class, where he really cemented his purpose to be an actor, to bring art to others and his journey began.

David started doing plays, joined a theater company, built and painted sets, was a stage hand…took vocal classes, dance classes…studied and performed Shakespeare, while maintaining his desk job.

Eventually, in his late 20s, David booked his first television role. Shortly after that, David made a life-changing discovery that answered a lot of questions for him. David’s discovery and unique life-story was featured on Ira Glass’ radio show, This American Life. (read more)
