Summary

As an advocate for hybrid journalism, Dave Sniadak has spent his career refining his creative vision for the sake of efficient and effective storytelling. Whether on the sidelines of an NFL stadium, or along the frozen trails of the Alaskan Wilderness, Dave’s experiences have led to a truly unique approach towards telling your stories.

A graduate of Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio, Dave learned early on the importance of utilizing a hybrid production process.
