David’s background in film production gives him a creative leg up in the world of ICT. After studying film at UW-Milwaukee, David jetted off to Los Angeles to pursue freelance filmmaking. He returned to Wisconsin to study web software development at Madison College and tested his new talents in positions at Epic and Sub Zero.
While he’s no longer soaking up the California sun, David’s love from filmmaking will never die. He continues to enjoy creating hand-drawn animations, despite the hours of tedious work that go into even the shortest of scenes!
