David's interest in game development stems from his interest in other individualized/freelance forms of art. When David was 10 years old he started his first YouTube channel where he uploaded stop-motion animations he created using Legos. After reaching 2,000 subscribers David moved on to other independent art forms like painting and making music. Later on, David developed an interest in video games - fascinated by their artistic potential as master platforms of expression. While in high school David took a summer course at the University of Southern California where he learned to develop his own video games. It was at USC that David met Anthony who brought him in on the idea of forming an independent game studio. David is most inspired by the games Cave Story, Limbo, and Hotline Miami.
