An actor. "I think I can be pretty cool to hang out with. My wife agrees. Sometimes."
Since Daved was a kid he has always enjoyed making people laugh "if I can do that for the rest of my life I'll be a happy guy." His grandma was a silent film actress as a kid and always told Daved acting, was the business for him. His wife agrees. The first time Daved got paid to be an actor, was doing theatre in Austin, TX back in 1997. Then a bunch of crazy life happened and it was suddenly 2008 and Daved was living in Tucson, AZ later quitting his job shortly after and walked in to a melodrama musical dinner theatre and sang a song and they said you're hired. After that Daved, and his wife got a dog named George and drove up to Phoenix and Daved got an agent named Terri and started doing local commercials. That is about when Hollywood came calling. www.davedwilkins.com
