David L. Schormann was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. After graduating from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California, David attended the University of California, Davis, earning a degree in English Literature and a minor in Creative Writing. In 1996, his studies led him to become a public school teacher. In 2013, David acquired a role as an Enterprise engineer in J.J. Abram's box-office hit Star Trek: Into Darkness, and instantly became fascinated with the world of movie making. He then enrolled in various methodology classes, and soon found himself on sets of Hollywood blockbuster films and well known television shows. With determination, and a lot of hard work, he quickly elevated himself into highly featured and supporting roles in hit shows on the Investigation Discovery Channel and other cable networks; as well as lead roles in several award winning short films. These opportunities prompted David to continue to advance his acting roles into greater depths, and utilize his creative writing minor to venture into screenplay writing. In his free time, David is heavily into physical fitness, gardening, and short story writing. He resides near San Francisco with his wife, and two daughters.
