I'm Dave. I am a digital creative based in central California with a background in programming, publishing, data, & design.
I have been putting things on the web for over a decade, and have been overseeing creative projects for about twice that. Here is a bit more about me.
- Online Publishing. For several years I ran the online division of a popular niche magazine. I learned a ton about branding, copywriting, design, and the power of trusting your own solutions over industry conventions. I wrote a full account of the experience here.
- Public Data. I've spent much of the past few years building web apps that make public records research better and easier. More about that here.
- UI & Graphic Design. Design is something I learned by necessity as I wore other hats, and grew to deeply love as an independent art. For both UI and graphic design, I value clarity of purpose, elegance, and cohesion above all else. View my design work here.
I'd love to hear about what it is you'd like to do, where you are at with it, and how I might be able to help. Each working relationship begins with a free conversation and some honest feedback.
Drop me a line below and I'll reach out to you shortly.
