Having worked at Disneyland in the late 1970’s, Dave experienced first-hand the inner workings of the park and the many wonderful inspirations that were cultivated within the mind of Walt Disney. Dave always felt a special connection to Disneyland, growing up just a couple miles south of the park in Garden Grove and seeing it evolve and grow to what we now recognize as the destination resort it has become. Dave believes everyone who has ever had a dream can relate to Walt Disney’s own dreams of “doing the impossible.” While most of us never fulfill our dreams to the extent Walt did, we all can imagine just how he must have felt walking down Main Street, USA of Disneyland, taking in all that he had done. However, while most of us would have felt a sense of accomplishment, knowing Walt as we know him today, he, most likely, would have been thinking of something new or doing something better…instead of being satisfied his success.
While Dave authored more than 100 tennis articles over the past 8 years, HIDDEN MICKEY* is his first venture into writing novels.
Dave has also parlayed his expertise in the art of Magic, using his magician skills to educate pros and entertain audiences around the country with expert close-up and slight of hand magic. In addition, David is a bass and guitar player who has played in several bands when he lived in Southern California.
David has been married to Dr. Kerri N. Smith for 20 years, currently a practicing Pediatrician in St. George, Utah. They have two children, Kyla Marie (10 years of age and featured in several of Dave's articles on training junior players), and Keaton Bruce, six years old.
