Dave is happy to call himself a true generalist within the theatre, one who keeps his hands in a bit of everything as the occasion warrants. For Troy, he oversees the scene shop and instructs within the technical curriculum, but he has also taught at other institutions in Stagecraft, Acting, Playwriting, Speech, and even English. There is simply something beautiful about tech, though, as Dave has been performing shop work for almost as long as he has been legal to drive an automobile. His plays have appeared in print, onstage, or onscreen around the globe, and he has worked as an actor for thirty years or more. He earned his BA in Theatre Performance from West Texas A&M University, and he earned his MFA in Theatre at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
