Since joining Payette in 2005 as a Visualization Designer, David has greatly influenced the quality of the firm’s design work. Starting as a 3D Renderer, his role has continuously expanded in both breadth and depth, and today he provides critical leadership to the Design Visualization Group. Over the past few years, David has introduced virtual and augmented reality as an architectural design tool to the firm, with a vision to continually enhance the capabilities of core design teams. Using VR and AR to facilitate design discussion and discovery has significantly impacted the entire design practice. David is a frequent lecturer at technology conferences such as Autodesk University, NHCSI and the AIA Conference on Architecture. He has also been quoted in Architect as an expert on integrating VR and AR into design workflows.
