You could say Dave has been a globetrotter most of his adult life. He’s teetered around the planet, camera in hand, as a professional videographer for near on two decades.
Born in Texas and raised Southern California, Dave started filming surfing as a hobby before making it his career. He was soon picked up by Taylor Steele’s Poor Specimen Productions, makers of some of the biggest surf blockbusters of the 90’s – ‘00’s.
This led to eight years of living out of a suitcase in some of the most diverse locations on the planet – from the jungles of Africa to Indonesia, floating for weeks on end through the coral quays of some of the world’s remotest islands to zipping through the busy city streets of Europe.
Since meeting his wife Caz and calling Australia home, he’s filmed freelance content for brands like Globe, Billabong, and Reef, and international broadcast content for Fox Sports, Ruptly, iTV Meridian, VID (Russia), RTL (Germany), ARD Sportschau (Germany), Euro News, Maori TV (New Zealand), FuelTV and many more.
But his greatest achievement? Creating two little sidekicks to take on more adventures, HPH’s resident kids critics Cooper and Caleb.
