David Sheinkopf is one of the carpenters featured in HGTV's reality furniture design competition series "Ellen's Design Challenge."

Growing up in New York City offered David Sheinkopf varied opportunities for creative expression. He worked as a pre-teen model before the flow of his career took him from appearances in television commercials to acting work in a number of soap operas.

By his late teens, Sheinkopf felt the need to spread his wings and moved to Los Angeles. At 19 years old, he was starring in the hit series "Falcon Crest," in a part he landed a month after hitting town. He continued doing pilots and had guest appearances on many shows but wanted to break into the movies. His first big role was as Morris Delancey in the Disney film "Newsies," the first of various appearances in that medium.

Sheinkopf continued to do films but felt he needed something more. He found that designing and building things filled the void in his life — and the time all actors sometimes have on their hands, so he began building sets for commercials and music videos, which led to art direction and set design. Loving the work of making things out of nothing with his hands, he started his own company building high-end custom pieces for celebrity clientele.

Sheinkopf adored the job but wanted to blend that passion with his earlier one for acting. Working on HGTV's "Design on a Dime" launched him in that direction. After four and a half years and over a hundred shows, he had realized that helping people with the design problems of their lives felt good. He continued on that road, working on "The Greg Berendt Show" and "Lowe's Creative Ideas Magazine," a great web-hosting medium. Today David Sheinkopf continues down the path of design and hosting, hunting for and finding new and different ways to bring his two loves together.
