Dave Turin from "Gold Rush: Alaska" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Dave Turin ("Gold Rush: Alaska") has been moving rocks all his adult life. He has been running a rock quarry business for the past 26 years with his dad and three brothers. The former high school football star took a degree in Civil Engineering and then joined the family business straight from college. Last season the Hoffmans brought Dave in as an outside consultant at their Porcupine Creek claim. He helped the rookie miners to get their Alaskan operation running and was inspired by their dream of digging gold out of the ground. This season, Dave was offered the chance to join the team full time. He convinced his family to let him take time out from the business and seized the opportunity with both hands. Dave doesn't pretend to know much about gold mining, but he knows how to move a lot of earth safely and there isn't a piece of construction equipment out there that he can't operate. Focused and determined, Dave's never been one to back away from a challenge. In fact he prefers to attack them head-on. Dave hopes his expertise and natural leadership skills will give the Hoffman team the boost they need to strike it rich this season.

Dave is married to his high school sweetheart, Shelly, and together they have three grown children and two grandkids.
