A Timeline of Dave's Creative Work

In 2007 and early 2008 I was lucky enough to work on promotional campaigns for four major films, some of the biggest movies of the year. They included The Host, Shrek the Third, Transformers, and National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets, which means I worked with some incredible clients, like Disney, Dreamworks, Paramount, and Magnolia Pictures. Additionally I did work for Microsoft, HBO, Random House, M&M's, Deep Focus, Chevrolet, Campbell-Ewald, McCann Erickson, and the U.S. military.
