A bit of a Renaissance Man; he’s a Master Diver, Master Graduate Gemologist, Gourmet Chef, Oenophile, and traveler. In a perfect world, he’d go diving, catch dinner, and then prepare it for family and friends paired with a great bottle of wine in some exotic location. Dave’s motto, “Live every day like you think it’s your last, because one day, you’ll be right.”
