Dave was born just outside of Philadelphia and became a weather enthusiast one day when a round of golf was cut short by a violent thunderstorm. His interest in thunderstorms is what led him to tornado alley and one of the top Meteorology schools in the country.

His wife has ties to South Florida and loves taking the children to the beach. Dave loves the South Florida warm weather and takes full advantage of the extended golf season whenever he can get away from work and daddy duties.
