Dave DeGeus was originally interested in a career in fine art and pursued that dream in 1964 by taking art classes at the celebrated Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, California. In 1975, he turned his attentions toward a career in commercial artist and graphics, and advertising designer at Northern Virginia Community College in Alexandria, Virginia. But he was soon invited to attend the prestigious Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. where he studied advertising design and filmmaking.
After attending art school for some time, Dave returned to California where he entered the motion picture industry and enjoyed a long career in motion picture post-production before returning to school at the California State University, San Bernardino where he earned Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and in Computer Information Management.
Here, his artistic background served him well in areas such as product conceptualization, development of business models, creating mock ups, logo design, technical and instructional illustrations, graphic arts, and computer-generated artworks.
Other creative endeavors include business writing, copy writing, script writing and instructional writing as well as writing directions for various processes.
He has written several short stories and has two e-books in publication and on Amazon.com: “Where It Began” and “How We Were”.
