When Dave purchased his first personal computer in the early 90s, he set off to learn everything he could about it. You could say it's in his nature and the result is self-taught programming skills honed over the years. By staying nimble and constantly deepening his understanding of programming languages, Dave leads SYDCON in bringing the best in custom solutions to clients.

Before SYDCON opened its doors officially in 2004, the idea was there. As an embedded lead web developer in the marketing department of a major healthcare company, Dave saw firsthand how technology could work to achieve marketing and communications objectives. What started as a successful freelance business for gas money and vacations has grown into a full-time business with clients all over the United States.
