Hi, I’m Dave.

I’ve logged over 20 years of advertising, design, branding, and illustration experience. I’ve won awards (it’s overrated), made products famous (always fun), and helped a LOT of businesses find their way. It seems like just yesterday that I was the only Art Director in San Francisco who knew how to make an animated GIF (true story). My career saw me thrive in the first dot com boom and (barely) survive the first dot com bust. It’s been exciting for sure.

Here are some more fun Dave facts:

• I’ve been hired to lend creative thinking to advertising agencies, small businesses, medium-sized towns, and giant corporations

• I have lots of experience marketing impossible products and hated companies

• My work was once hated internationally by the Internet. I fought back and lived to tell about it

• My work has been featured in Time, Newsweek, People, New York, TV Guide, Time Out NY, Out, Parents, Ms. (see above), magazines and more

• My work as been seen on the Today show, David Letterman, Live! With Regis and Kelly, @ Midnight on Comedy Central, Entertainment Weekly, VH1, among others

• My work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Oakland Tribune, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, Daily Mail, and other newspapers

• My design and illustration work has been sold in major art museums across the country including NY and SF MOMAs, the Getty, Walker Arts Center, and more
