Dave grew up in a small town in the Finger Lakes region of New York and at an early age fell in love with the outdoors. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Geology, Dave set out to explore the world, working seasonally as a mountain guide and pursuing a growing interest in photography and storytelling. Since 2013, Dave has dedicated his time to working as a professional filmmaker. His work, projects and travels have drawn him to over 85 countries on six continents and his varied published work has appeared on television, in print and on the internet for clients such as Nat Geo Kids, PBS Nature and Outside Magazine.
Identifying strongly with the concept of “Tenacity in Pursuit,” Dave aims to inspire and motivate curiosity through his work. Since 2004, Dave has led over 20 exploratory tree climbing expeditions to forest canopies around the world through his work with Cornell University’s Tree Climbing Institute. Always excited and ready for the next location, challenge or project, Dave is a proud member of the Lindblad-National Geographic Video Chronicler team.
