Dave Hunt was born in Hampton Roads, where he lived before moving with his wife Liz to Nelson County in 2017. He is a 36-year-old college senior, proving that it’s never too late to finish what one starts. Expecting to graduate from the University of Virginia in the spring of 2021, Dave and Liz plan to return to Hampton Roads to grow their family. In addition to school, Dave has worked and continues to work in various public speaking venues. He has narrated tours, weddings, parades and even a music festival. He is fond of saying — and knows Liz is tired of hearing — that there are few things on this Earth that he enjoys more than standing and talking in front of an audience, and one of those things is the sound of his voice.
