Hi there, I'm Dave! I'm currently working at Rockstar San Diego as a systems engineer.
I graduated from Michigan State University in 2020, where I studied game development and computer science. I worked at the Games for Entertainment and Learning (GEL) Lab during my time at MSU, and in 2019, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Africa to launch a GEL Lab project that was used in a research study there. The opportunity to see the impact of games in that setting is not one I will soon forget.
Following graduation, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to collaborate with some really talented and experienced engineers, and I learned a ton as a result. I worked as an Associate Software Development Engineer at Gamebreaking Studios after having interned at the company the summer prior, then at Iron Galaxy Studios in Chicago as a Programmer Intern.
I'm passionate about games and technology, and their ability to bring people together. I grew up in Wyoming, where I fell in love with games as I shared them with my brothers.
