He is known as "The Lost Shark Guy for his efforts to find little and previously unknown shark species around the world. He's also a regular on the Discovery Channel's Shark Week series "Alien Sharks."

An internationally respected space history journalist, Dave is also deeply fascinated by all aspects of the grand workings of nature’s awesome machinery on scales ranging from galactic to subatomic. And topics take in all aspects of the arts and sciences.
