David states, "It is virtually impossible to gain the wealth of knowledge required to build a solid acting technique without complete dedication, total attention and a burning desire to act.  However, here we can turn on the light and begin to explore what it takes and how it works. That is what Acting Anyone Academy is all about."

David was graced to study voice with one of the legends of voice training, Seth Riggs. Seth has trained Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Michael Bolton, Julio Iglesias, Toni Braxton, Bernadette Peters and all of the American Idol Singers (i.e. Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Stoddard, etc.), as well as many of the "American Idol" singers and X Factor.
