David R. Perry is a professional problem solver - sometimes the problems are deeply technical, other times they are purely people-based, often times a mix of both. He solves them.

 

Whether analyzing computer networks for faults, or reading someone else’s writing and suggesting edits, I thrive when helping others. I can build a studio from scratch or when I can walk in to an existing pipeline and figure it all out quickly. I also have an ability to catch nit-picky minutia before projects are delivered to a public audience has proven invaluable on a number of occasions.
