He is the co-creator and writer of the all-ages graphic novel series Lacey & Lily from Darby Pop Publishing, detailing the adventures of a middle-schooler and her dog turned superheroes.

Dave has also contributed to the pages of Ink Puddle Press' comedy series The Devil and Mr Gandhi and his prose has been published by AHOY Comics as an extra feature in their acclaimed series, Black's Myth.
His book Frank the Barber, a historical fiction tale set on Christmas Eve 1943 in the city of Utica, New York combines Dave's love of the yuletide season with his appreciation of 1940s American history and popular culture.
A father of three, Dave is the author of the children’s picture book The Little Lamp about a small table lamp dealing with change and the re-discovery of purpose after being tossed to the curb with the trash.
He occasionally reflects on life and parenthood at his blog, thedorkydaddy.com
A former journalist and news anchor, he has written for newspapers and broadcast, contributed to What to Expect, the companion website to the best-selling parenthood series What to Expect When You’re Expecting, and appeared on 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 and has voiced characters in the video game Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries.
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.
He currently lives in Central New York with his wife, kids, and cats.
