Founder &


Born and raised in New York City, David started his modeling career in 1981 at the age of 16. He graduated from the Browning School in Manhattan and speaks both fluent French and Spanish. He spent most of his career in the 80s with Ford Models and appeared in numerous magazines including Seventeen, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, GQ, hundreds of catalogues and several tv commercials such as 3 musketeers and Michelob Light. He was also featured in a Rolling Stone Magazine article as one of the top young male models who balanced both modeling and college. After graduating from The Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania in 1986 , David moved to California to further his career and in 1987 decided to live in Europe and model in both Paris and Milan.

In 1989 David wanted to not only work as a model but also learn the other side of the business and started to work as an agent. That led to him opening his own agency in 1990, Zap Model Management located in the world famous Trump Towers in NYC. During this time of his career, he attended multiple model and talent conventions and modeling schools in search for talent. Realizing the industry’s need to introduce potential talent to legitimate management companies, he saw an opportunity to open his own.


In 1993 Model Search America was founded by David and soon became the number one model and talent convention in the country. For more than 15 years, MSA held over 175 conventions throughout the United States, introducing over 150,000 potential models and actors to management companies and launching the careers of thousands of models and actors. In addition, he has judged numerous pageants and magazine cover contests. In 2008 David decided to retire from the business and sold Model Search America. He is also the cofounder of Cutler Salons, one of the most prestigious hair brands with 4 locations in New York City. He has been involved in real estate development in Florida and has continued to consult similar convention companies including The Model Search.

Since 2013, David, his wife Radka and 3 children Sebastian, Bianca and Max live in the Hamptons and David teaches yoga and co-owns Yoga Shanti West Hampton Beach.
