While at the Post, Dave launched the @WashingtonPost TikTok channel - where he posts short, newsworthy TikToks twice a day, five days a week.

For his work on TikTok, he earned two Webby nominations in 2020 and a win in 2021. He won an award from the North American Digital Awards for 'Best Digital Project to Engage Young and/or Millennial Audiences.' He also made the Forbes 30 under 30 list in December 2020.

He recently wrote a book, Make A TikTok Every Day, which includes 365 "prompts" for TikTok. Currently, he is building out a team at the Washington Post to (finally) help him make TikToks.
