Dave caught the radio bug as a kid growing up in New Jersey. It started when Dave got his first small transistor radio. Instead of sleeping when his parents sent him to bed, he would lie awake for hours in the dark listening to music and the voices of his favorite announcers.
By the time Dave was a teenager he had decided that he wanted to be one of those voices. So at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, Dave majored in Communications and landed his first job behind the microphone at the college radio station, WMCR 91.9 FM.
After graduation, Dave began his professional radio career working Sunday mornings for WHVW 950 AM in Hyde Park, NY. That position later lead to a full-time position as Mid-Day Host and eventually Dave’s first experience as a Program Director. Following a move back to NJ, Dave joined WSUS 102.3 FM where he worked for nearly 9 years. Before coming to Family Life, Dave spent nearly 16 years as the Program Director and Operations Manager for WVNJ 1160 AM in the New York City area.
Dave and his wife Patty have raised 6 children: Lexi, Chelsea, Max, Sam, Johnna, and Harry. While they were both raised in the Catholic Church, Dave and Patty came to know and love the Lord after enrolling their children in Sunday school at a local Presbyterian Church. It was at that church where Dave’s family was moved by the Holy Spirit to become new members and active Christians.
