About Dave

Author, Wedding Officiant, Jazz Trombonist

About Dave Thanks for visiting my web site and for clicking here to learn a little more about me. If I must attach labels to who I am and what I do, then (in no particular order) I am a writer/author/blogger and public speaker (which is the main focus of this web site), a wedding officiant, a jazz musician, and a presentation skills instructor/coach. I write a blog called Retire Fabulously!, and I am working on a series of books about retirement lifestyle planning.

  • I write about retirement lifestyle planning over at RetireFabulously.com. I have one published book, "Design Your Dream Retirement." Check it out! On this site, I write about other things, such as observations about life and what's going on in my life. It's my online soapbox.

  • I am available to officiate weddings and vow renewals. Visit CeremoniesByDave.com to learn more. I also officiate funerals and serve as Master of Ceremonies for conferences, retirement parties, and similar events.

  • I primarily play jazz. I'm currently in Desert City Jazz (DesertCityJazz.org) and the Wednesday night band at Paradise Valley Community College. I am available to play in theatre pit orchestras, accompany choral groups, and anything else you might need a trombone for. I also play electric bass.

  • I am experienced and well-versed in modern presentation skills and public speaking. I am available to give speeches or workshops about retirement lifestyle planning, workplace diversity, communicating for excellence, and other topics. Visit PresentingForExcellence.com to learn more.
