A native of the northwest, Dave grew up in a small suburb of Seattle in a musical household. His earliest training was piano lessons that he and his 3 older brothers took each week. It was in the 3rd grade however, that he would first get exposed to guitar. His teacher was kind enough to offer after school lessons for interested students. This was the spark that lit the fuse that would become his lifelong passion from that point on.
