ABOUT DAVID S. HOGAN David started working on the craft of acting at Seattle University, and quickly learned he had a passion for Shakespeare. After graduating in 2000, he landed his first professional Shakespeare role in the Proteus with Wooden O Theatre. This would prove to be a lasting relationship, as David has performed with the company, any their affiliate, Seattle Shakespeare Company, many time, playing roles such as Caliban, Mark Antony, Grumio, and King Henry. David’s pursuit of work in front of the camera began in earnest in 2011. Since then, he has booked many films, a TV pilot for Spike TV, worked along side Cary Elwes in A Bit of Bad Luck, and in 2012 he made is network television debut on NBC’s Grimm (Season 1, Episode 18).
