Hi. I’m Dave.

I’m a passionate hands-on designer and creative leader. My work spans a wide range of creative disciplines — Creative Direction, Design, Animation, 3D graphics, Photography and Filmmaking. I love to create and build…to transform thoughts and ideas into images and experiences. I believe in the power of creativity and its ability to change the world.

Creative Direction

From initial concept to final execution, a strong creative vision can help drive a project to successfully solve design objectives. This collection of work showcases projects that feature my concept development, design strategy, and creative direction — as well as creative execution. Whether it’s for VR or mobile…print or video, I have a passion for bringing ideas to life. >>


Virtual Reality & Game Design

As part of the design team for the HTC Vive, I’ve worked closely with the industrial design, user experience and marketing teams to design and launch one of the first virtual reality headsets available to consumers. While most of my VR user interface and content work is confidential, this collection of content showcases some of my work in VR. >>


3D Graphics & Digital Art

With the ability to create anything imaginable, 3D graphics and digital art has been a vital to my work. From advertising illustrations and broadcast style frames, to print and virtual reality — 3D graphics and digital art have allowed me to bring ideas to life. This collection of 3D work showcases some of my expertise in modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering. >>


Photography

While I enjoy photographing all types of subjects, I have an especially strong love of the outdoors and am drawn to places I’ve yet to explore. My passion to see and explore the world inspires me to craft images that convey my personal experiencing of a place, rather than simply documenting a scene. >>


Animation & Motion Graphics

Motion has always played a signification roll in my work. From animated logos and product launch video animations, to software interface transitions. This collection of projects showcase some of my favorite motion graphics and animation work. >>


Mobile UI Design

As Executive Creative Director at HTC, I had the privilege of leading the visual/motion design and execution across all HTC products worldwide. This collection of work showcases some of the products I’ve worked on, that helped pioneer the mobile ui design field. >>


360º Panoramic Imaging

While developing VR content for the HTC Vive, I’ve gained a new passion for 360º spherical photography. This collection of images represents some of my work in 360º imaging and VR virtual tours.

Filmmaking

An extension of my passion for photography, filmmaking adds time and sound to my creative capacity. I enjoy creating moving pictures that tell a story or convey a feeling that is impossible to capture with a single image. This collection of videos showcases my directing, cinematography and editing. >>

Aerial Photography & Film

Another extension of my passion for photography, aerial captures provide an entirely new perspective. Using a quad-copter aerial drone, I am able to capture high resolution images and video from an entirely new point of view.
