Hi, I'm Dave!
I’m an award-winning visual storyteller who seeks truth through impactful stories and documentaries. My years as a journalist bring authenticity to my storytelling and have honed my ability to conduct powerful interviews. I bring my stories to life with exceptional cinematography, abundant natural sound and concise editing.
My visual storytelling abilities helped earn WTAE-TV several Edward R Murrow Awards, Emmys and a National Peabody Award for both documentary and daily news content. I recently produced, edited and delivered two videos for Teak and Timber, which generated sales and helped establish their online presence. In addition to interviewing their board members, employees, investors and woodworkers, I created motion graphics, color graded, licensed music and built cohesive stories from the interviews. My product photography, graphic design, instructional videos and marketing content generated sales at Bear Dog Bicycles, as well as helped grow the newly launched brand.
My passions are mountain biking, backcountry camping, Vonnegut and analog photography, which all get mixed together on my weekends. In addition, I write about photography and outdoor adventure for afterwhitsett.com.
While you're here, please check out my demo reel, video portfolio and photography. Cheers!

"Teak and Timber engaged with Dave for the completion of multiple mission-critical marketing videos. Dave was given full digital freedom to stitch storylines together, guide interviews, and manage the actual shoots. Dave has an uncanny ability to take something special that exists in the world and transpose that into an impactful digital story that holds the viewer's attention from start to finish. I would highly recommend Dave's expertise to anyone looking to not just tell a story but have their audience understand and relate to it."
