David has been a solid member of our Animation team at Rhythm & Hues. He has been apart of our team since 2004 and has done excellent work on a variety of projects. He has worked on many commercials as well as features. David performs very well in production and is fast and reliable. As an employee he has a great work ethic, is prompt and strives to communicate clearly. As an animator he has a good eye for detail, a nice aesthetic sensibility and he takes direction well. He is a good team player and often helps other animators. He is currently acting as a lead animator for a team of seven animators. David has a positive attitude and enthusiasm that I look for in an animator. He has been an asset to our animation team.
— Anjelica Casillas, Character Department Manager, Rhythm & Hues
Dave is a very experienced animator and well versed in many styles and platforms. Whether working on character animation, previs, creatures or digital doubles, Dave brings a positive attitude and steady enthusiasm to any task. His knowledge of practical creature effects was also a big plus for our VFX work.

As co-creator of Alien: Descent, I had the pleasure of working directly with David, who led the animation
effort that brought our alien queen to life. David’s ability to balance quality, time, and resources was a
significant factor in delivering the queen at the level we had hoped to achieve within the limited
schedule. To that end, he quickly put into place an animation pipeline that allowed us to maximize
animation throughput and quality while remaining on target. Throughout the project, his relaxed and
professional attitude allowed us to collaborate effectively and helped guide us through periods of
creative ambiguity. Based on the glowing reviews we’ve received about the addition of the queen, I can
say without reservation that David would be an asset to any team. Additionally, while David’s animation
talent speaks for itself, the leadership and creative direction he can bring to a project should not be
overlooked.

“What’s great about Dave is that he’s great at a lot of things. He can wear many hats and wears them well. If you have a question about sculpting, animating, editing, or even story then Dave’s your man. People like Dave are hard to come by at work. Someone that can inspire and elevate your own work.”
— Kelsey Mann, Story Supervisor, Pixar
David is one of the best Animators I’ve ever worked with. I first met David years ago, as I was starting in
Games. At the time he was the lead Animator and I was transitioning from a freelance graphic artist to a
game artist. David taught me quite a lot. Years later, after I had become Art Director on Star Wars: The
Old Republic, I was able to hire David as an animator for that project. He brought a wealth of experience
and could hit the mark with little feedback or direction. He made my job easy. He is one of those people
managers love. You don’t have to micromanage him, you know he has got it and will do the job right,
thus leaving you free to deal with the thousands of other issues a manager has.
Dave has always been a very laid back, humble guy, which belies the vast experience he has in both
games and film. He is easy to work with and professional. I hope to work with him again one day

On Speed Racer, David routinely produced consistently good animation, all the while with an exemplary attitude. Think David = Mercedes, high quality and low maintenance.
— Johnny Gibson, Digital FX Supervisor, Digital Domain
Dave is a highly talented animator with a great sense for movement and details. 
It was a true pleasure to work with him on Tron Legacy and several EA-games commercials at Digital Domain.
— Bernd Angerer, Animation Supervisor, Digital Domain
Dave is one of the reasons why I enjoy working in Animation in Los Angeles. Few coworkers have such a
selfless interest in seeing YOU succeed in your career as well as he has succeeded. I’ve known him for
nearly 15 years and he is exactly the same person today as ever- skilled, inspired, fun, modest,
knowledgeable, ambitious, honest, supportive... all words that help describe my friend. He is a proficient
artist who can do everything from animate a monster in Maya to sculpting a parade float. Who else could
you say that about?
— Tim Szabo - Art director visual development artist and background designer
David is an extremely motivated and driven artist in not just animation but in his sculpting as well. He’s passionate in what he does and won’t except anything less than perfection. My respect for him rests not only on those qualities but for his honesty and his straight-forward, tell-it-like-it-is approach to work.
— Juan Sanchez, Lead Animator, Tremor Entertainment
David was one of the best animators to come through Pixomondo! His hard working attitude and his dedication to make things work through thick and thin made him a pleasure to work with. One of those people that goes above and beyond, and that I would love to hire again and again...!!
