Developer Biography

David was born in San Francisco and grew up in San Rafael, California. He received a Computer Science Degree in programming in Washington. His first opportunity to enter the Gaming Industry was for LucasFilm Games as a Game Tester. Since gaming has always been his passion he found his niche. Three years later, he was given responsibility for half the Missions in LucasArts Games X-Wing and then TIE Fighter.

After taking a time off to be a full time single parent, he went back to school in order to update his software skills. He took digital, animation and authorization courses at the College of Marin, mainly 3DMAX. While attending, he was asked to develop and teach a Game Design class. In 2007, he is now an Instructor in Game Design at College of Marin and has also taught for DMA at Stanford University. David worked for Stormfront Studios as a Designer until it folded. He still teaches Game Design at College of Marin.
