Who Am I?

Hi, I'm Dave.

Creative & Art Director, Web Designer & Developer, Photographer, Mentor, and All Around Nice Guy.

Over the last 25 years, I have worked in almost every aspect of marketing from a production designer to the owner of my own studio and marketing company. I currently freelance providing pro bono services in designing/developing web sites and web applications, photography work, print marketing materials, brand development, and administration of several business social media accounts. Virtually all my work is geared toward veteran business startups, charity originations, and non-profits.

I have had some incredible opportunities to be part of some amazing teams with work that has been recognized with several ADDY Awards and a couple of WEBBY's. My photography has been published in numerous national and international magazines as well as a number of showings throughout the US. This is my passion - well that and these incredible mini-crumble biscuit bites from this little place call Capistrano's´ - the best just the best!

Still want more huh?

JetPay Corporation
Art Director | Sr. Web Developer
July 2005 | Current

JetPay is a multifaceted payments, payroll and merchant services origination servicing clients from small retail store fronts to some of the largest eCommerce merchants on the web today. As the in-house AD the majority of responsibilities fall in the area of our online and trandshow efforts while providing perspective & creative input to our print media as well as studio time creating imaging of company products and PR photos. My time with JetPay has afforded me the opportunity to work not only in a very creative capacity but a very technical one as well. I have been able to sharpen my web programming skills in the area of encryption, web services and eCommerce PCI compliance. I currently serve as part of our key generation team & on our disaster recovery team; with a primary focus on business continuity and physical security.

Due to my position JetPay, I am unable to develop or design payment applications, modules, shopping carts or other eCommerce platforms where JetPay is not the primary payments processor. This is considered a conflict of interest within the payments industry. I can, however, provide expert consulting services for PCI compliance, architecture, and processes including best practices for risk & fraud prevention as well as Automated Clearing House (ACH eChecks) processing.


Anyone Know a Guy formally nine72 Studios
May 1992 | Current

Anyone Know a Guy provides creative solutions for identity and marketing needs of non-profits, charity, and veteran based start-up businesses. Innovative campaigns to leverage emerging media and technologies to launch or reinvent image and perception. Providing everything from branding, advertising, direct mail campaigns, print production and photography services to consulting on current marketing efforts and process improvements pro-bono to non-profits and veteran run businesses.

While branded as nine72 Studios I engaged in the largest marketing campaign of my career. An international campaign that for a new concept in the home building industry. The goal of taking it to market, grow the adoption rate and increase revenue for the parent company. This campaign included trade shows both in the US and in Europe, sole sponsorship of a Hendrix Motor-sport NASCAR for a the 2000 season (Oh we won the NAPA 500 that year.) and co-sponsor with the US Coast Gard the following season. At the end of 18 months, the adoption rate rose from 30% of major US home builders to almost 70% as well as almost all major building material suppliers and over 1000 cities. This pushed an increase in the over all revenue of the company from $250 million a year to $790 million^. The end result was the purchase of the company for $1.6 billion 9 months later.

^ this number based on earning report for the company at the close of 2002.
