Dave is the co-creator (along with artist Andrew Cieslinski) and writer of Lacey & Lily, the all-ages graphic novel from Darby Pop Publishing about a middle schooler and her dog unwittingly becoming superheroes. 

Other comic book credits include co-creating (also with artist Andrew Cieslinski) and writing Holidaze, the adult comedy series concerning the lives of mythical icons like Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Cupid and their friends when they're hanging out at their favorite watering hole. He has also contributed to the pages of Ink Puddle Press' comedy series The Devil and Mr. Gandhi.

Dave's prose most recently appeared as a back-up feature in the second issue of the acclaimed series Black's Myth from AHOY Comics.

His non-comics work includes the children's picture book The Little Lamp, the tale of a small table lamp dealing with change, and Frank the Barber, a piece of historical fiction set on Christmas Eve, 1943.

A former journalist and news anchor, Dave has previously written for newspapers, broadcast, and online, and has contributed to What to Expect, the companion website to the best-selling parenthood series What to Expect When You’re Expecting.  He has appeared on a wide range of outlets including The Weather Channel and The Today Show.

Dave also lends his voice to The Brass Lantern old-time radio adventure podcast, playing former reporter-turned-private investigator, Wam Dixon.

When it comes to the world of four-color comic adventures, his influences sway toward the Silver Age and Golden Age of comics. His master’s thesis was on the use of comic books as a form of American propaganda during World War II, and he has given several lectures on the subject.
