About Dave

I've been blessed to have great parents, an awesome brother, a beautiful wife, and the best son a guy could ever ask for. Though I own a web and marketing company (DANIMA Creative Group) and I have  a degree in Phys-Ed from York University, music has always been the central focus of my life. From collecting records to DJing, from Light of Day Canada to Evan Rotella Music, there has always been one common theme in my life, music. As you will see here at, it's all about the music!

As Joe Walsh once wrote...
"Life's been good to far"!

To say I'm feeling a bit sentimental is a huge understatment.
