He’s a trained boxer known outside the squared circle as the Great White Hopeless.  Dave is an avid historian with a concentration on the great General Gao’s transformation from a fierce leader on the battlefield to a culinary genius. Often mistaken as The Situation from “Jersey Shore,” Dave takes pride in being the tallest and tannest of the Andelman brothers with the greasiest hair.
