Dave is a proud Nutmegger honored to have the opportunity to deliver the news to people and communities he’s spent his entire life growing up around. Since joining FOX61 he’s covered some of the state’s biggest events becoming a trusted source for local news.

Before joining FOX61, Dave was a Media Production Specialist for Quinnipiac University’s School of Communication teaching the next wave of future journalists. He also spent two and a half years at NBC Connecticut as a Production Assistant and Sports Producer.

Dave was born and raised in Northford, Connecticut having graduated from North Branford High School. Dave went on to graduate from the University of New Haven in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Communication. 

In 2019, he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master of Science in Sports Journalism from Quinnipiac University. His thesis documentary called “More than a Game” aired on CPTV in the fall of 2019. The 30-minute film follows around five men’s league hockey players in the twilight of their careers still playing the game they love.

Dave is a passionate sports fan with allegiances to the New York Rangers, Mets and Giants. He also dreams of the day the Whalers come back to Hartford!

When Dave is not at work, you can find him at the gym, around the rink or hitting the links. You may also find him weekend mornings in Northford coaching youth hockey for the Greater New Haven Warriors.

Dave is a FOX61 student news alumni.
