Get to Know the MAKER – David

MAKE-David-Headshot-01

Another day, another MAKER to welcome to the team. Say hello to David, our newest member of the MAKE Digital Group web development team! David has known a couple of us from working together on past projects but we’re happy to have him officially on Team MAKE.

David has past web development experience with some amazing places, most notably being MMGY Global here in town. He’s worked on huge projects, including tourism sites for the likes of Washington DC, South Dakota, and even our own VisitKC.com in KC!

Even though web development is David’s area of expertise (he really does love learning all the latest technologies) but his degree from UMKC is actually in Studio Arts. Crazy right? Throw in the fact that he’s a photographer and we’ve got a triple threat on our hands. In a good way.

While he’s not in the MAKE Digital Group office coding away, he enjoys KC’s arts and cultures districts and what they have to offer. Museums, restaurants, parks, biking, photography, arcade bars – there’s not much David doesn’t do. No, seriously. He’s even been featured in an outdoors magazine for dog sledding in Northern Minnesota. Because why not?

We’re happy to have David on board!
