David Murrietta Jr.’s Incredible Journey to Becoming a Successful Actor and Social Media Influencer

Being recognized as one of the most promising talents in the entertainment industry is a highly coveted achievement, even more so for someone like David Murrietta Jr., who has only been in the business for a few years. Despite having a late start compared to his peers, the talented actor continues to show his prowess and proves that he is deserving of recognition and acknowledgment. 

The actor and social media influencer has been all over California and is originally from San Jose. While living in San Francisco, he dabbled in acting and participated in a few projects. However, he quickly fell in love with the craft and before long, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his newfound passion. 

This decision to become a full-time entertainer came as a surprise to the people who knew him as it was quite a shift from his previous background in law enforcement and business. Nevertheless, his family showed immense support throughout this change. Their encouragement is one of the motivations that fuel the outstanding performer to become the best.

Despite not having a lot of theatrical training, the actor possesses an innate ability and talent for acting. He has worked on several films such as  Taps, Vicious Circle, and Land of the Haunted Dolls. He has also appeared on TV shows, including Sunset Glory: Doolittle’s Heroes and Grey’s Anatomy. In one of his most recent projects, he worked as a stunt performer in the highly-anticipated Marvel movie Black Widow.

When he is not working on film and TV sets, he films video blogs, more commonly known as vlogs, with his lovely wife, Alexandra Creteau. Together, they run the YouTube account Dalex Vlogs. The lifestyle channel has a wide range of content: from dating tips, travel stories, beauty advice to health and fitness. In total, their videos have been viewed more than 840,000 times. 

Just recently, in perhaps one of the most exciting developments in his life, the vlogger has finally married Alexandra, his soulmate and the love of his life. They tied the knot on May 8, 2021, in an intimate and private ceremony at Regan Beach in Lake Tahoe. However, the pair would love to share this important milestone with their family and friends. They intend to organize another wedding celebration in August of this year.

Aside from being passionate about his craft, this incredible personality is also an advocate for unity throughout the communities and the world. He believes that spreading love and positivity is crucial, especially during these trying times. David hopes that through his platform, he can show people the importance of peace and acceptance. 

When asked to share a message, he said, “Take a moment to listen to others, whether it be a friend, family member, partner, or a complete stranger. We have strayed so very far away from being united as one common human race. We are all brothers and sisters. We need to all come together and support one another, not spread negativity and hate.” Learn more about David Murrietta Jr. and get updates about his future projects by visiting his Instagram page and YouTube channel Dalex Vlogs.
