Dave was born in Lima Peru, but raised in the Swiss moutains, where it didn’t take him long to develop a profound love for backcountry snowboarding. Calling Hoch-Ybrig his local mountain, Dave has spent the last two years filming for Isenseven and together with his partner in crime, Mu ‘Stephan Maurer) he delivered perhaps the part of the year, in Isenseven’s current release “A way we go”, which already earned him the cover of both MBM and The Reason magazines.. Dave exclusively wears the Volcom GPT line when snowboarding. Off snow he’s an avid filmer, photographer and editor, check out some of his work on his instagram “debeka”
