Dave is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a dual major in Computer Science and Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences. While there, he employed Python, C++ and C# to develop graphics rendering engines, collision detection, and UI for various PC and mobile game projects. After working with a MySQL database for an educational software project, Dave realized he had a passion for backend development.
Upon graduating, Dave decided to move away from game dev and pursue more database work. He ended up on Long Island, exposing data through REST APIs with Django/Python for an iOS front-end. He brought these skills to Tivix, where he now enjoys the opportunity to work full-stack on web apps.
Originally from Poughkeepsie, NY, Dave now lives in Brooklyn and loves the perks of being in the city. He spends his free time dancing or attempting to make music, hacking games together and snowboarding. Sundays during fall and winter are devoted to watching football.
