Curating The Largest Database of Online Flyers

Dave is the founder of the network PhatMedia which houses the largest collection of online flyers on the planet. Stored in his man cave is a larger collection of flyers. Dave has a personal collection of twenty thousand individual pieces. The PhatMedia network allows visitors to search through the huge database and even add new editions. Dave’s first website was launched in 2001 and stronger than ever today. As the curator of his own collection and the administrator of the network, Dave unintentionally became an historian.
