Dave Castelnuovo, Game Developer

At the start of his career Dave was thrown into a room with a box of Japanese manuals for the Sega Genesis and told to figure it out and make a cool game. That has been the underlying theme throughout his 22 years in game and interactive product development. 

He has a unique mix of creative, business, and technical talent which he has used to make many cutting edge products for his own project and our clients. He has a knack for seeing creative and technical solutions that can either simplify an otherwise complex project (bringing it on-time and on-schedule) or to push a platform beyond it's normal limits.
