Dave was born Dec. 5 1965 and graduated Gloucester High School in 1984. He went on to fish full time at North Atlantic Tech. He worked for about 12 years full time in the charter party boat industry on boats from Massachusetts to Key West, Florida.
In the late nineties he entered the commercial fishing end of the industry full time. He worked on deck for years and eventually graduated to the wheel house. Dave finally purchased his own boat in 1996. He’s currently fishing the F/V Hard Merchandise as seen in National Geographic's hit series Wicked Tuna.
