He’s produced and reported more than 20 documentary specials for PBS, including his Frontline film My Father, My Brother and Me, which explored his family’s battle with Parkinson’s, and Capturing Grace, which tells the story of what happened when a group of people with Parkinson’s disease joined forces with a legendary New York City dance company.

Winter Stars is Dave’s first book. He and his wife Lynn live in Oakland, California and divide their time between the Bay Area and Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
