A native of Columbus, Ohio, Dave drove himself to Los Angeles in 1983 with one goal in mind: to get into the film industry and make movies. As a boy he was fascinated with photography, film, and sound recording -- and he admittedly spent a lot of what he calls "nerdy alone time" creating self-produced audio skits and short films. And at the age of 21, on the advice of his OSU film school professor, he moved to Hollywood -- and quite soon afterwards started 'sneaking thru the gates' of the major studios -- a feat that is much more difficult to pull off today.

But he quickly came to realize that if you don't know anyone in the business, you need credits -- so he volunteered on various films, holding the boom, sometimes operating the Nagra recorder, and of course, getting the donuts. His first big break came when he landed a paying job at the National Geographic Specials in 1987. And just a few years later, at the age of 26, he became Hollywood's youngest supervising sound editor and found himself not only supervising a team of editors but also directing A-list talent onwamandaplummer the ADR stage - including Robert Duvall, Viggo Mortenson, Amanda Plummer, Peter Fonda and TV's James Garner

Dave's directing credits include several short documentaries, 7 commercials, a BTS mini-feature, 2 music videos, and a handful of promotional films. "Guys Night" will be his first feature film, and he feels right at home. "I was 17 when I started shooting film. Nobody could rip that Super-8 film camera out of my hands - I drove my family and friends crazy. But I know now that by screwing around for so many hours with that camera, I was internalizing dynamic camera work & composition, and learning the withstevenbauer.jpgcapabilities and limitations of stock and lenses. I also discovered that the 'language of film' is entirely natural to me, and I started figuring out how to tell stories with a camera".

When not prepping for Guys Night, Dave operates Post in the Woods, his Los Angeles-based post-house geared specifically for the indie filmmaking community. "We are a one-stop shop for professional film finishing services. I love working one-on-one with talented new up-and-coming directors and producers. It essentially allows me to make movies every day."
