Dave has been attending science fiction conventions since he was a teenager but did not get actively involved until 1999. His first official job was to co-chair Capricon 19, and he’s been hooked ever since. He has chaired Capricon two additional times, served on the Board of Directors of Phandemonium, Capricon’s parent corporation, for one three-year term, and now serves as the Facilities Liaison for them.

His work with Worldcon also started at a high bar – in 2004, he was asked to take over the Chicago in 2008 Worldcon Bid as Bid Chair. Over the next two years, he worked hard on that bid, although did not succeed in bringing the Worldcon back to Chicago that year. He went on to work for Nippon 2007 as the Events Division Head, and has worked several times as the Hugo Awards Administrator. He led the successful Chicago in 2012 Worldcon Bid, and was the Chair of Chicon 7.
