David Lee Strasberg is the Creative Director and CEO of The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute, with campuses in New York and West Hollywood.  

David manages and supervises staff, develops curriculum and executive produces all plays and short films created under the auspices of the Institute, all while mentoring students on their craft and their careers. Recently, David has begun travelling to other cities to hold acting seminars to promote Method Acting. 

David also has a consulting business, coaching executives and other high-level professionals to become more confident leaders and public speakers, using techniques similar to those that he uses with actors.

Son of famed acting teacher, Lee Strasberg, David grew up in New York City in the vibrant and creative atmospheres of both the Institute and the Actor’s Studio. He sat in on many of his father’s classes in close proximity to many of the most famous actors of our time. As a child actor, David participated in various shows at the Institute and at the Actor’s Studio.

David attended Collegiate High School in Manhattan and then went on to graduate from Brown University with a B.A. in International Relations and American History. He received his MBA from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management.

Prior to joining the Institute, David spent a number years in the political arena. During Bill Clinton’s first presidential term, David worked the Small Business Administration under Erskine Bowles, who later went on to become the White House Chief of Staff.

Following the Northridge earthquake in 1994, David accepted a position in Mayor Richard Riordan’s office on his Economic Development team, where he was charged with helping to facilitate the receipt of Federal relief funds. David went on to hold several positions in Mayor Riordan’s office, including roles on his Policy and Budget teams, overseeing the Los Angeles Fire Department and the Information & Technology Agency, among others.

David’s journey with diabetes began in 1986, when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a 15 year-old. He became an early adopter of the insulin pump in 1999. In 2005, his experience with diabetes took on a new dimension when his 10 month-old son, Sawyer, was also diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
