Dave Jia's parents wanted him to be a doctor, lawyer or engineer, so he took some acting classes and became all three. Born in Brooklyn, Dave was raised outside of Philadelphia by parents from China. At the age of four, he began developing a strong interest for the arts. While attending college, Dave was discovered by his talent agents and began performing in various TV shows, films and commercials. In 2016, Dave Jia was awarded "Best Actor, Comedy" at Flagler Film Festival. Outside of acting, Dave loves to play guitar, write and exercise.
