Founder and CMO
Dave loves to help brands grow. He has championed brand growth, leading both strategy and creative execution, in agencies and in-house marketing teams, and at two of his own companies. With B2C and B2B experience, he has helped startups and seasoned brands, assisting both for-profit and non-profit organizations.
With a few years on the East Coast, he led the development of global campaigns for brands like Pepsi, Gatorade, Levi’s, and Starbucks. His path led him to grow internal marketing teams, building and leading a brand strategy team at OtterBox, and helping a startup manufacturer in the defense industry.
In 2017, Dave launched Cereal, where serving brands flourishes as a passion.
Head of Creative

Day 6 has helped organizations connect with their customers through powerful visuals, most notably for Disney, Lucasfilm, Hasbro, Warner Bros, and Mattel.
