From Disney Character to VR Pioneer to Emerging Technologist: David Captivates Audiences

David's journey isn't your typical marketing path. He honed his storytelling with his degree in theater and as a performer in the WDW Tencennial Parade, a skill that electrifies his speaking engagements. With over 30 years of experience, he's challenged industry giants like Razorfish, Microsoft, and Pepsi to craft more compelling brand narratives.

VR Visionary: David's vision isn't limited to the stage. Since 1991, he's been a pioneer in VR for marketing, even producing some of the earliest VR promotions ever. His work has earned prestigious awards like a Cannes Lion, and his "AudienceGames" for Volvo was hailed as "one of the best marketing ideas in the world." By putting tens of thousands through VR experiences, he's developed an unmatched understanding of what truly engages audiences.

Bridging the Gap: His experience as Director at both the AT&T AdWorks Lab and the PwC Experience Center allows him to seamlessly blend corporate savvy with theatrical flair. David doesn't just talk about creating experiences, he makes it real, creating unforgettable presentations that empower marketers to leverage technology for authentic brand experiences.
