Since 2000, David has worked in a variety of roles in Product Management, Engineering and Product Marketing. Starting as a developer at a start up called iHarvest that was acquired by Interwoven, he eventually became the Sr. Product Manager on TeamSite, Interwoven’s Flagship Content Management platform. In 2003, he joined Macromedia to work on the Breeze (now Adobe Connect) product line staying on through the Adobe acquisition.
While taking a break to get his MFA degree from San Francisco Art Institute, David consulted for Adobe as a Community Manager working primarily on the community site ConnectUsers.com, building up the user group program, and developing training and resources for customers.
After completing his MFA degree in filmmaking, David returned to high tech taking a position at ConnectSolutions, a leading provider of web conferencing and webcasting, to lead a team building a suite of new real-time collaboration products for government and enterprise clients such as General Motors, US Department of State, and O’Reilly Media.
Most recently, David joined SnappyTV as the Head of Products where he is leading a team building a social TV platform that enables media companies, tv broadcasters and consumers to create highlights of live TV and share them via social media.
Outside of his work in high tech, David is an accomplished artist. His work spans a variety of mediums including film/video, photography, social practice, and installation and has been shown around the world at venues such as the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, European Media Arts Festival, International Asian American Film Festival (New York), Sydney Underground Film Festival, Seoul International Film Festival, Documenta Madrid, and the Present Tense Biennial, an international survey focusing on Chinese and Chinese American art. Hold the Sun, a feature film he co-directed, debuted at the SF Int’l Asian American Film Festival in 2010.
