Before creating Rimrock Creative Media, David worked as a sound editor in Hollywood on over 25 feature films (Black Hawk Down, The Matrix Reloaded, Mission Impossible 3). From 2007-2015, he created and managed the in-house Pechanga Creative Studios and was responsible for TV commercial production at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, CA.

At Rimrock, David has worked with clients in a variety of industries, including resort & casinos, software & tech companies, amusement parks, tourism, finance, small business, and legal marketing.

David's expertise includes the entire video production process - producing, directing, writing, cinematography, editing, motion graphics, sound, music composition, and color grading. This allows Rimrock to serve as a one-stop shop for smaller projects, or scale up to large campaigns by bringing on a crew of trusted collaborators. 

He has a Master's Degree in Film and Television from San Diego State University, and has taught courses in Sound Design at SDSU.


The quality of the footage in a video says a lot about the company it's representing. That's why we only use professional cinema cameras in our productions, along with LED lighting and pro quality microphones.


Almost anyone can make a great looking video these days, but few have the experience to know what is going to be compelling to your audience. More than ever, it's important to resonate with the viewer, rise above the noise floor, and create a call to action. My process starts with understanding the viewer and creating video content that speaks to them.

I pride myself on having a great relationship with my clients, to make working together fun, and to exceed the expectations of my clients on every video I produce.

David and his crew at Rimrock Creative Media were professional, courteous and fun! David is filled with imaginative ideas and was well organized with his all of his shots. David was respectful and courteous while shooting in the waterpark. He often kept me updated on the progress of the video and of timelines. David’s vision brought forth an enormous marketing tool for DropZone Waterpark. The finished project was nothing short of amazing!

“Dave and his team at Pechanga established a whole new paradigm for casino gaming videos. To introduce new slots, explain gaming lore and attract attention to promotions, Dave’s YouTube and commercial TV spots did something never seen before. They combined innovation and humor with incredible high-quality production value. Together with his expert sound mix, some timely CG work and great editing; they made pieces work that would have failed in lesser hands. The end results were amazing with compliments from slot manufacturers, competitors and (most importantly) thousands and thousands of customers.”
