He understands firsthand how deeply weather impacts people’s lives and remains an optimist, always bringing a little sunshine to his audience, regardless of the weather conditions outside.
Even during his senior year in high school, Dave knew his future lay in television, though he initially thought it would be in news broadcasting. However, his interests turned skyward, and he found his true passion in meteorology. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in mass communications/journalism from Colorado State University/Pueblo, Dave pursued a Certificate in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
With his dedication and expertise, Dave has earned the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation from the American Meteorological Society, signifying the quality and professionalism of his weather broadcasts.

Beyond his work as a meteorologist, Dave is passionate about educating and engaging the community, especially young minds. He spends a significant portion of his time teaching thousands of elementary school children across the Front Range, inspiring them to become Junior Weather Watchers and part of the CBS4 team.
Giving back to the community is close to Dave’s heart, and he actively participates in and emcees numerous fundraising events for nonprofit groups throughout the year. His dedication to broadcasting and community service led to his induction into the Pueblo South High School Hall of Fame.
Looking ahead, Dave hopes to continue his rewarding work at CBS4, where he has found a deep connection with the vibrant city of Denver. When he’s not forecasting the weather, you might find him enjoying golf or skiing, depending on the weather’s whims, and coaching his kids’ soccer and basketball teams with enthusiasm and pride.
