Hi, I'm Dave!

I'm a full-stack designer living in San Francisco. As long as I can remember, I've been drawing, playing instruments, taking pictures... I even started learning Photoshop before I entered high school. With an eclectic artistic background, interface design was instantly intuitive, just like the interfaces I strive to create.

Photography

Photography is a personal art that enables one to see things from a different perspective. One of the greatest things for one's psyche is being in the moment, just you and your camera. Dave uses photography not only as an exercise in the arts, but also as an escape; a way to connect with and understand himself better.

OS X 'Everest' Concept

With the impending release of OS X 10.10 (codename 'Syrah') at WWDC, it was expected to have an updated look, more closely in line with the aesthetic that iOS 7 brought to the iPhone. This time around, I decided to take a stab at a conceptual redesign of the current Mac operating system.
