David Andrew Laws is a Nashville-born, Kentucky-raised, Carnegie Mellon-trained, Bulgaria-traveled, New York-living actor, director, writer, and teaching artist. Bitten by the art bug early, he made his stage debut at age ten in The Hardin County Playhouse's To Kill A Mockingbird, and has explored every medium available to him since.

David moved to New York City immediately after graduating from Carnegie Mellon University. In NYC, David dove into a multitude of projects, from Oliver Twist at Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey to the music video for Sam Smith's Like I Can. Working in such established venues as Princeton's McCarter Theatre and the historic Hotel Chelsea, David quickly solidified his career path.

In 2013, David co-founded Hamlet Isn't Dead, a company dedicated to producing the entirety of Shakespeare's canon in chronological order. Their work often incorporates live music, a complete demolition of the "fourth wall", and is excessively joyful and accessible. To date, they have mounted 16 of his 37 works.

Today, David lives in Washington Heights with his fiancĂ©, and works in-tandem with several arts organizations, including Developing Artists, The Shakespeare Forum,  and many others.
