Dave grew up in Short Hills, NJ – where his parents still live today with extended family throughout Essex and Union counties. He graduated magna cum laude from Northeastern University in Boston. Following graduation he chased two of his passions as a touring musician and work at a motorcycle restoration shop.

A girl finally brought him home to NJ, now his wife! He took what he learned from touring and began a very successful 15 year career in event marketing, most recently with Jack Morton. He has worked with many of the worlds top brands leading teams in the ideation and execution of world-wide campaigns, negotiated global master service agreements with fortune 500 companies, managed budgets – egos – expectations – emotions – all things critical to the home buying process.

Dave made a successful transition to another of his passions, Real Estate, and prides himself on his depth of knowledge of the area and market, particularly Northern NJ. He and his family live in Glen Ridge and have 2 children in the school systems. He is very active in the community as a local scout leader, coach, first aid squad volunteer, and class parent. Coming from a business/event background, he knows in Real Estate: even the smallest details matter, to always be a source of calm (especially when things go sideways), and how you leave people feeling once a deal is done is as important as the deal itself. For many, this is the largest and most emotional purchase they will make, it is a privilege to help guide them through the process!
