Born and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts, Starzyk began acting while in college, at first as an exercise to overcome stammering, which, he discovered, magically disappeared while on stage. He had grown up in a very musical family. His father had a beautiful singing voice, and he taught young David to sing – an ability that helped him win one of his first stage roles in The Fantastiks. His broad television resume includes roles in such series as: The Nanny, Felicity, Pacific Blue (recurring as William Blake), Veronica’s Closet (recurring as Pete), Mister Sterling (recurring as Anthony Marino), The Practice (recurring as EPA attorney John Myers), CSI: NY, Entourage, Prison Break, 90210, Castle, CSI: Miami, Desperate Housewives (recurring as Bradley Scott), Bones, Grimm, and many more. Starzyk’s feature film credits include: Madame, Huntress: Spirit of the Night, Free Enterprise, The Virgin of Juarez, To Save a Life, Frozen Kiss, The Perfect Guy and Don’t Say No.
