Dave was a member of the Canadian Pop/Rock band The Moffatts. He played keyboard and sang lead and background vocals. In 2001, Dave came out as gay to his family. He left home and did not speak to his father for over a year. This effectively broke up The Moffatts as a band.

In 2004, Dave came out publicly in an article in the Winnipeg Free Press and for a brief time hosted karaoke at a gay club in downtown Winnipeg called Desire.
In 2005, Dave made his professional theatre debut in the Rainbow Stage's production of Miss Saigon. He was also a contestant on Canadian Idol where he placed in the top 32 but failed to make it to the top 10.
