The "XVII" in his name was a way for Lawrence to distinguish himself from previous David Lawrences already registered with SAG. At the time, he was the 17th David Lawrence listed on IMDB, and appended the number to his name upon his own registry.[4]

David does voiceover work and speaks at events, including the NAB and the Portable Media Expo.

Lawrence is the voice of America Online's customer service lines, and the voice of over 1500 other interactive voice response telephone systems.
