L.A.-based animation filmmaker and visual development artist. Current MFA candidate in Experimental Animation at CalArts.

Dave believes strongly in music videos as an important space for visual experimentation.

He's excited about working in ink on paper (in combination with TV Paint).

Dave's visual style includes heavy use of straight-ahead, and extremely pushed poses, in depicting character performances.
His current major project is a satirical, post-apocalyptic sci-fi short called "Zone 17".

Available for:
• 2D animation
