DAVID TULL has lived in Columbus since 2010 and absolutely, insufferably loves it here. He has worked with various troupes around the area and is grateful for the opportunity to continue his life in the theatre with such fine folks while careering in customer service and social media so close to his family in Ohio. He holds a BA in Film Television and Theatre from the University of Notre Dame, an MFA in Theatre Arts from the University of Iowa and is a member of the Equity Membership Candidate program. His wife Kate has also worked as a dramaturg, director, and managing director for various companies in Columbus, in Iowa, and in NYC.
While in Iowa, David did lots and lots of theatre with lots of great people, including his future wife. He also survived a hundred-year-flood, spent a good amount of time at county fairs dressed as a stork, and visited the future birthplace of Cpt. James T. Kirk. Since moving to Columbus, David has married said future wife, gone on lots of adventures with her and their dog, evolved into an aspiring locavore, and taken up marathon running. The opportunity to apply his experience as a teacher, artist and communicator to a career in Columbus’ start-up e-commerce scene has been an unexpected and humbling blessing. He has thoroughly enjoyed his experiences with AVLT, both as a patron and as a performer, and is proud that they’re a part of his artistic home.
- David’s Columbus Pro-tips:
- When you try it, ask the people at Brother’s Drake to tell you about mead and let their love for it sweep you up.
- If you go to the Columbus Zoo and imitate the animals (maybe as part of a character study or something, don’t worry about it…) the staff is pretty cool about it and will usually answer any questions that you have.
- Double Happiness in the Brewer District.
- Believe the hype: Ray Ray’s BBQ
- Don’t believe the hype: Dime-a-Dog-Night. See the Clippers any other night of the week. Nobody needs $0.10 hot dogs.
- Lots of cool brewpubs are popping up, but they’re all still chasing Brew’s in Granville.
- If you’re going to do it, “Red, White, and Boom” is best enjoyed from the safe distance of the various bars and restaurants on South Fourth Street.
