How David Amortegui is Creating His Future Through the Power of the Internet

Not many 22 year olds can say they’ve been featured on national and international campaigns for companies, products, and businesses. David Amortegui is among those few that can. And we reached out to ask him how you can use what he’s learned for yourself.

His journey to find his purpose started when he was in middle school and he read “The Giver” By Lois Lowry. David “related to Jonas a lot. [David] felt like everyone around [him] knew what they wanted to do with their lives, but [he] didn’t”. Since then, David had a goal, to find his “thing”. He’s appeared in multiple ad campaigns but it wasn’t always like this.


“How do you go from a small town in Maryland, to being booked for an international jewelry company in Hong Kong?

“For me the hardest part was finding opportunities I wanted. It might sound very cliche, but craigslist was my best friend. I got inspired by Gary Vaynerchuk. I went on craigslist, and initially, I searched for jobs in acting, or modeling. And surprisingly, I didn’t find anything. But I kept checking everyday to see if something new would pop up. It took some time and some patience, like Gary preaches, but eventually I found something that fit with what I wanted. Though it wasn’t ideal, I kept working at these small gigs until I eventually started meeting more and more people in the acting community.”


“How did you know you wanted be to an actor? And how does modeling fit into that as well?”

“It wasn’t always clear that acting was what I wanted to do, I actually started out in sales. The thing I loved about sales so much was that nothing was guaranteed. But with that came a huge advantage, that is, the harder you worked, the more you got rewarded for it. With acting, its sales, but on a greater level. The more you invest in yourself as an actor, the better roles you get the better you become as an actor. What other career rewards you for being the best like acting? I also thoroughly enjoy diving into different characters and becoming a whole different person in my roles.”


“How did you make the transition from Sales to Acting?”

“It wasn’t easy, but it was like something out of a movie ‘ironically’. I was working my sales job, and I had a customer come in. It seemed like a normal person, just asking questions, trying out different products. But out of no where, she just stops, looks at me and says ‘You’re settling’. It rocked my world. I was settling. My dream wasn’t sales, I knew what my dream was, but I accepted that it was just a dream, and that it would never happen. But when that lady looked me in the eye and said ‘you’re settling’ I knew what she meant. It felt like God was talking to me directly. Like I was destined for more. It was then I decided I had to chase my dream. I quit my job the next day.”


“Thank you for your time David, what would you like to say to people who read this?”

“I’d say, you can fail at something you don’t like doing, you might as well commit to something you love. And if anyone wants, they can message me on instagram or twitter and even tik tok.
