Dave was originally a technical writer whose past companies include Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Anagraph and Pimco Investments, He took on additional duties when he joined Alta Vista Shopping in Irvine, California, designing animated product tutorials for visitors to the site and managing sections of the company intranet.
In 2001, he joined Buy.com (now Rakuten), where in addition to his technical writing duties, he continued to advance his knowledge in website design and animation,
After the dot com crash, he found himself "downsized". That's when he decided to found Mind to Sight Web Design. In 2004, Dave packed up his family and moved to Redmond, Oregon, a big change from the fast pace of Orange County; instead of wading through contracts with faceless entities, he now seals a deal with a handshake.
He likes the personal approach, working on a one-on-one basis with his customers, who are mainly small businesses in the Redmond area. Dave realizes that money is tight these days, and his customers want a presence on the web that won't break their bank account.
