A native of Seattle, Dave began his music career in Chicago, playing saxophone in clubs all over the city while studying at DePaul University. He relocated to Portland, OR shortly after graduation, where he continued performing as a saxophonist and singer, touring extensively throughout the Northwest. He moved to Los Angeles with his wife in 2012 and has been fortunate to work and mentor with some of the City’s finest composers.
