DIRECTOR / EDITOR / MUSICIAN / VISUAL STORYTELLER / LATINX
Dave is a director who formed a strong creative identity during a diverse upbringing in NY. He was an acclaimed young jazz and big band trumpet player, a punk band drummer, and a retired high school baseball player, all of which inform his approach to filmmaking.
His work delivers a connection between content and audience in a thoughtful harmony of compelling visuals and authentic performance, supported by the emotional resonance of music. From branded content and commercials to music videos, Dave’s work has garnered worldwide honors, including Cannes Lions, CLIOs, and recognition from The One Show, along with dozens of international film festival awards and screenings.
Heavily influenced by blooper reels and MTV’s music video heyday, Dave doesn’t take life too seriously – and his humor and approachability come through in each collaboration. He and his young family live in NYC where he finds daily inspiration for curated playlists that, like his directing, can not be contained in a single genre.
