He was a sports journalist for the Sun Sentinel Newspaper in Miami in the early '90s and also wrote for newspapers as a sports and police reporter in Fair Lawn, New Jersey.

He credits his mother's love and his close friends for getting him through the tough times.

Although I did not have OCD this book was great. I am very proud of my uncle Dave for writing this amazing book and over coming his fears. Until he wrote this book I had no idea. It was a topic my family never discussed for I was too young. I am so proud of him and his amazing journey.
