He ended his corporate career as a Director over a large Project Management Office that installed computer networks throughout the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.

To spite Dave's success in the corporate arena, his long time passion with Videography and Photography finally got the better of him. In 2005, Dave decided to break the bounds of Corporate America and follow his dream. He formed Choice Video Services and has not looked back since. Dave states that one of the key factors contributing to the success of his growing business is his affiliation with the Association of Video Professionals.

Steven Volk - Association of Video Professionals, Director at Large In the late 70's Steven Volk started his visual media career with a photography and darkroom business for processing B/W film and color enlargements. This first transitional era from 8mm film to the VHS and Beta Camcorders taught him the fun of being an early adaptor of technology.

The early 80's expanded his skills by adapting computer based accounting and database systems. The late 80's and early 90's brought digital music on CD's, digital cameras and internet communications.

The 90's brought the era of PowerPoint, video, and computer generated graphics to tell stories. 35 years later he brings this experience to a professional "digital darkroom" for production, transfer, editing, web video, DVD/CD duplication and computer graphics all to communicate his client's personal and professional stories.
