Dave grew up loving the Harold Lloyd slapstick comedies. “Daring, ridiculous, and funny… but enough about me,” he jokes. “Lloyd was very simple, and very inventive, and I think that’s the essence of effective communication and storytelling.”

Dave has also directed and shot some of his own documentaries (including “The Making of ‘The Life of Reilly'”, and that experience gave him the belief that the format would succeed in any medium.

Before AboutFace, Dave was president of a commercial production company, Purple Onion, and prior to that went to the University Of Wisconsin—Madison, as he says, “for basic life lessons… which means not counting too much on what you learn in college.”
