David Valente was born and raised in America's Hometown. It made him hyperaware of hypertourism, and as a result, he rarely travels with a camera. After working very hard in high school because nobody informed him it wouldn't matter if he didn't, he attended the college which provided him with the most scholarships and financial aid. He met a great deal of great friends, many of whom attended that school for the same reason. As a result, he is an expert in the 1997-2001 Hartford bar and breakfast restaurant scene, although nothing excited him like the time he discovered Breto's Pizza delivers until 4am. He still considers himself a waiter at heart, although music is his main passion. He currently works underneath a Judy The Time Life Operator Headset providing technical support for a very large cable company.
