In his latest project “Taps”, David Murrietta Jr. plays a character named Moose. This short film is about a grieving father as he explains his veteran son’s demise after experiencing PTSD.

Before stepping into his current career as an actor, he had a career in law enforcement. David Murrietta said, “I have degrees in criminal justice and general business, which is as far from acting as you can get. But very early on in my law enforcement career, I suffered a major knee injury. My ACL, MCL and meniscus needed to be replaced. Ultimately, this injury led to other doors and opportunities.”
Originally from San Jose, California, David Murrietta Jr. moved to San Francisco, where he first dabbled in acting. After working on a few projects, he fell in love with acting and the entertainment industry, so he relocated to Los Angeles to pursue his newfound passion.
With each project David Murrietta Jr. works on, he makes sure to observe and learn new things to keep improving his skills. He hopes to inspire others to take a chance on their dreams and see where it takes them.
