David Patrick Green
From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide
Green graduated in 1989 from the University of Guelph with a degree in consumer studies, with the intention of working in the advertising field; additionally, he took his first acting class while studying at Guelph. His first job was a six-month stint selling cellphones, which at the time averaged $5,000. For a year after that, he backpacked through Europe, working as a ski instructor and ski shop employee in France in order to finance his personal expedition. Green then worked for three years in Canada as a collection agent, moving to Poland (near or in Warsaw) to work as an accounting manager for an advertising company.
In 1996, he attended University of Southern California working for a Master of Business Administration degree, so as to advance his career with the Poland-based advertising company. Instead of returning to Warsaw, he worked as a management consultant in the tech industry prior to the dot-com crash, as he was attracted to the southern California sights.
After the crash, the then-36 year old Green pursued his passion: acting. Since then, he has appeared in skits for Jimmy Kimmel Live (in 2004), as well as in Veronica Mars (having read for the series six times before being booked), CSI, and ER.
In February 2006, he began interning at Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer Casting, having interned there for at least six months.
