David writes music for all media including advertising, branding, movies, television, and games. He works for such clients as Sega, LucasArts, Microsoft Game Studios, Landor and Associates, Beyond Pix, Rich Pageant, and Nextel. He also teaches at an Apple Certified training facility in San Francisco called Pyramind and has long been a resource to fellow composers, producers and studio engineers who needed help with their DAWs. A few years back he created a YouTube page that had some of his most popular tips and tricks in Logic where he provided a Logic resource for other aspiring producers, composers, and engineers. This YouTube page quickly became a source of inspiration to help the Logic Studio community at large. With over 22,000 followers on YouTube he decided (and we agreed) that it was time for the "sflogicninja" to partner with macProVideo.com to create longer format, in-depth tutorials. We are excited to welcome David to the mPV team as we continue to create the most and the best Logic tutorials on the planet!
