Like many who wind up pursuing a life in the theatre, Camanche, Iowa, native Dave Bonde never intended to;

his plan was to secure a B.A. in Mass Communication. Yet after appearing in his first theatrical production at St. Ambrose University in 1991, Bonde found himself hooked by the allure of the stage, partly because of its connection to his own field of study.
