About Dave Keystone

Kids really do say the darndest things to Dave Keystone, aka Uncle Dave, when he asks them dating tips on his YouTube videos series #KidsOn—and he’s right that it “will make you smile.” This year, he took a break from addressing adult problems with kids’ advice when he won a summer of travel from Iceland’s WOW Air in return for snapping his daily adventures. As a bona fide #SnapTraveler, he also took over the @visitestonia Snapchat account to prep himself for a 24-hour trip there from his home in Toronto. Dave has somehow turned the stuff kids only dream about into a full-blown career. If this is adulting, sign us up!
