After 20 years in the music industry working as a studio engineer including 12 years of teaching music technology and production, Dave found himself doing live sound for a funk band. After a discussion about driving and setting things on fire he found traveling on the road with an illusion act was an interesting development in his career. Dave’s ability to drive long distances with out the aid of energy drinks and ability to put out fires meant that he fitted right in with the Matricks crew. Dave soon became a valued member with his fine art of banter and relationship counselling was only topped by his hatred of mayonnaise that meant he didn’t eat all the sandwiches.
