Hi, I'm Dave

It's great to meet you!

About David

Dave was born in Massachusetts and grew up in the Tampa Bay area. He’s a proud veteran of the US Navy and a graduate of the University of South Florida, where he received his degree in Mass Communications.
Dave has worked in radio broadcasting as a DJ, Traffic reporter, and news anchor for over 20 years, most recently for NewsRadio WFLA in Tampa. He has also been involved in media sales with AT&T, iHeart, and CBS Radio.
Dave moved into the PR field in 2018 with a major emphasis on achieving substantial radio, television, and podcast interviews for his clients. Since joining Otter PR, he has successfully helped dozens of clients get featured in top-tier media outlets, including ABC Radio, Bloomberg Radio, Forbes, Men’s Health, MSN, Newsweek, Psychology Today, Yahoo!, and more. Along with these successes, Dave’s efforts have also helped his client Vytal.ai obtain their ultimate PR dream goal — a multi-million dollar acquisition!
Favorite Client Types:
Dave enjoys working with a wide variety of clients, and never shies away from learning the ins and outs of a new industry or market to help them accomplish their media and PR goals. He is particularly fond of helping clients navigate the fields of politics, sports, health, medicine, and self-help — especially for Veterans.
Otter Things To Know:
Dave currently resides just north of Tampa, Florida. In his free time, he enjoys kayaking, biking, music, singing in his car (so long as no one else is around to hear him!), and stand-up comedy.

Are you a good fit?

The amount of publicity they have generated for has been nothing short of impressive. It has dramatically increased new clients by 30% and I have seen my platforms grow 2-fold
