David Burnell IV: Be whatever you want to be in life

Updated: Apr 9

If I could sum up my life in 3 paragraphs it would go like this:


My name is David Burnell IV and I played DI college football for the East Carolina University Pirates. I was nicknamed "The Flea" because they thought I was too small to play football.... until they saw me playing on TV.

After graduation, I saw a tv commercial of a guy slaying a fire monster with a sword, so I joined the United States Marine Corps. I quickly realized I was fighting humans instead of monsters and those humans were using missile rockets. One rocket landed 10 feet outside of the T-wall. It was then I realized I would need more than a sword.

I finished the military and left America to pursue an acting career in Berlin, Germany. I landed my first major role as "The Shocker" in the upcoming action film thriller "Gunpowder Milkshake." Catch me on the big screen fighting women assassins.
