He eventually became a senior video manager who was running an entire video department, and occasionally providing cinematics for in-game productions. He left Interplay in the year 2004, and a year later, David joined High Moon Studios where he has worked ever since. He currently directs story, various creative and cinematics for all projects there, and is a part of the senior management team that runs the studio.
