His skills in scripting dramatized documentaries and corporate videos earned Dave Australian Writers’ Guild Full Membership, a prestigious status the AWG has maintained during his 25 years in the USA. This was earned in his own marketing communications & consulting company, in which he wrote Public Service Announcements, documentaries, corporate advertising and videos for all media. That company evolved from a successful marketing career in multinational corporations.
Dave has written poetry most of his life, songs for bands he was in when young, and later short stories and drafts of novels. His talents in writing dialogue and characters came into focus when the supportive North Fork Writers Group encouraged his use of life insights in tales of people battling dysfunctional lives - their own or others’. Dave’s often wry style is evident in some of the tales he was proud to have in the North Fork Writers Group’s 7 Voices, Volume One - and now, in his personal anthology, Strangers in My Mind.
