To begin with, Burtka grew up in Canton and graduated from Salem High School in 1993. He then attended the Interlochen Center for the Arts to study acting, and later earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Michigan. In addition, he studied singing and acting in William Esper Studios.

In 2003, Burtka debuted playing Tulsa in the play “Gypsy” in which the main star was Bernadette Peters. He created the role of Boy in the premiere of “The Play About the Baby” by Edward Albee, a role which earned him the Clarence Derwent Award for the Best Male Artist revelation. In 2004, David played Matt in the musical “The Opposite of Sex”, and returned to appear in the premiere on the East Coast in the summer of 2006.

Concerning his television career, Burtka made his first appearance in a guest – star role in the political drama series “The West Wing” (2002). Later, he appeared in several episodes of the crime drama series “Crossing Jordan” (2005), and portrayed Scooter in seven episodes of the series “How I Met Your Mother” (2006 – 2014).

According to Neil Patrick Harris, Burtka gave up acting to become a chef. In the summer of 2009 he graduated from the Culinary Institute Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Pasadena, and created a service company in Los Angeles. However, he was seen on the screens in the television series “Beat Bobby Flay” (2015) and “American Horror Story: Freak Show” (2015) as well as on the big screen in “Dance Off” (2014).

Finally, in the personal life of the actor and chef, six months after participation in the series “How I Met Your Mother”, the rumour spread that the actor had won the role because he had an affair with Neil Patrick Harris. Speculation arose because Harris declared to the magazine People that he is homosexual. Burtka did not respond to rumour, but Harris said that they would move to live together. Burtka and Harris attended the presentation of the Emmy Awards in September 2007 as an official couple for the first time. In 2010, the pair became parents of a son and daughter twins through a surrogate mother. In 2014, the two married in an intimate ceremony in Italy, which was attended only by close family and friends.
