Dave Michaels evolved from a successful 17+ year career with the worlds largest and most prestigious big 4 consulting companies to an accomplished art director and illustrator. His experience with Accenture, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and KPMG included servicing Fortune 100 companies like Nike, Sprint and Apple. The end result is that rare, dualbrain ad bird: a creative thinker who gives our clients whip-smart business strategy and stunning imagery. In between deadlines, Dave works his wizardry as a classical sculptor, is an accomplished adrenaline junkie and determined to find and party with Bat Boy (we miss ya, ya little pimp). His current passion is attempting to break yet another bone, add to his scar collection and see how may times he can wreck his vintage Bobber-style motorcycleDavid Michaels called Smelly Kat. If he can stay in one piece,principal/design director the gas fumes appear to enhance his creativity. 10.
