David entered the visual effects industry working on 'Dante's Peak', 'The Fifth Element', 'Titanic', and 'Armageddon' at Digital Domain. He has supervised and created visual effects for feature films, music videos and commercials, and continues to concentrate on pipeline design, and process integration and optimization in support of creative needs.
