What students are saying:

I have had Dave for two SAS training courses, he is incredible!
This guy is a rock star. Love his courses and hopefully we get another course by him!!!
Dave is an excellent instructor! He is patient and takes the time to fully answer all questions. His pacing of instructional time vs breaks was perfect.

What is your favorite training course and why?
It's difficult to choose one as I enjoy teaching all of our courses. However, if I were to choose one, I would say that it would be the SAS Macro Language 1 course. The SAS macro language is so powerful and is a great productivity tool for SAS programmers.

What is the best part about teaching?
I enjoy helping people in general and I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing students gain an understanding of topics that are either completely new, or which were previously confusing or difficult to understand.

Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, or hidden talents?
I enjoy reading and watching movies as well as traveling. It would probably come as a surprise to most people that I am very interested in architecture, in particular residential home design.

What is your favorite place or dream vacation destination?
My favorite vacation ever was the Western Mediterranean cruise that my wife and I took for our honeymoon.

What is your favorite movie, book, artist, or musician?
I don't have one favorite movie, but my favorites include: To Kill A Mockingbird, True Grit, Family Man, The Notebook, The Great Escape, Back to the Future, and Top Gun.

Are you passionate about a particular sports team?
I have been a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys since I was 11 years old. Win, lose, or tie, I'll be a Cowboys fan 'til I die!
