Languages spoken: 

Dave has been developing websites since 2003 when he needed a web presence for the record label that he founded with several fellow musicians. In 2004, he became the lead web developer for the Green Party of Alberta (Canada) which made heavy use of Drupal and CiviCRM. In 2005 Dave left his first career in the music industry and started developing Drupal websites full time. Dave joined Advomatic in 2007 and has since been very involved with improving Drupal's performance, maintainability, and security.

During his stead at Advomatic Dave has been Technical Lead on projects for The ACLU, The Annenberg Foundation, The U.S. Department of State, and The Clinton Foundation.

Dave has travelled extensively over the past decade and has been very active in organizing his local Drupal community, be it in Calgary, Hong Kong, or the Greater Toronto Area.
