    Dave is one of the most gifted content creation people I have had the opportunity to work with in my career. He always figures out a way to illustrate your vision in a presentation, video or training that he creates himself. With very little direction or follow-up, Dave is able to design content that speaks clearly to whatever audience you may need to target for training or education.
