About

Hi, I'm Dave

Im a Digital Designer living in the greater NYC area. I have a passion for all things in the design world from studio art to audio recording. My intention as a designer is to create strong work through clean typography and capturing visuals.

 

I currently work for Tabacalera USA as one of their primary Digital Designers. I create web and print marketing design including work an app for Google Play. I started with their flagship Auction Site and went on to lead all the design work for Cigars.com. I now do work for print and help maintain a level of professionalism through all their sites including JR Cigar.com, Serious Cigars.com, Cigars.com, JR Auctions and more. 

I've worked on projects for Cafe Grumpy, Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, Yelp, Spotify, Buzzfeed, The Wynn Casino in Las Vegas and many more companies who received branding work at my time with MSM Design Studio.

In my free time I enjoy diving head first into all things pop culture and doing anything I can to continue working creatively at home.

Adobe CC

I've been working with Adobe products since well before my college years and from digital painting to audio editing they're some of the best tools you can use to create digital art. 

When I'm not working with a mouse and keyboard I can be found utilizing this tool the best of my ability. Being able to interact with your work directly on the screen is an amazing thing and Wacom creates the best tablets I've ever had the pleasure of using.  

Working with Canon hardware is where I've always felt my photography was just more fluid and having that full frame camera is an absolute necessity for amazing photography.

The recording mic I trust for great audio quality. It houses 3 separate internal microphones and when combined with Adobe Audition can do a lot of great things.
