Dave DeLizza Multimedia Specialist
While studying Music Composition at University of the Arts (grad 2005), Dave became incredibly fascinated with making music for animation and other multimedia projects. When tasked with laying in a whole soundtrack for a student project, he quickly realized he was at home in the world of production and post production sound. What followed was a love of the entire process of editing both sound and picture, writing, and even shooting. Dave has worked on various shorts, films, animations, commercial projects, and games on both the production and post side.
David tries to keep his brain matter from turning to goo by teaching both private music lessons and also Sound Communication at Rowan University, consuming a seemingly endless pile of tutorial text and video, and learning new skills. When not recording metal scraping on the grate of his fireplace or gaff taped to the editing chair, David enjoys cooking, practicing instruments, and spending time with his wife and 1.5 year old, who is also obsessed with making absurd sounds with household objects.
