David is the first point of contact for day to day discussion, review and assistance with your project. He takes the lead on visual design, the overall “look” of the site and is chiefly responsible for your website’s copy, content and photographic elements. As the project unfolds, Dave is the “go to” person for any questions, suggestions or concerns.
After spending 15 years with one of the US Fortune 500 companies in various sales, marketing, technical and business development roles, David decided he’d like to spend less time travelling making money for another corporation and set himself some new creative challenges. Having worked with software and hardware from way back when discs were actually floppy and laptops weighed more than your luggage, David understands the challenges facing businesses and works with our clients so that they get the best IT solutions going.
