David Avakian started his career creating 3D animation for companies like Bayer (TV insert spot), and Pepsi (a bottle washing machine). He worked on television graphics and video editing back when systems were not digital.

In 1999, he was one of two developers hired for a small start-up company with 15+ employees called Digital Seas International (DSI). DSI was the pioneer of Internet Cafes on Cruise Ships, commercial vessels, and oil rigs. David developed the billing solution and front end-user experience. Customers included Disney, Norwegian, Carnival, Holland America, and Princess Cruise Line to name a few. He initially developed the platform to include Internet Cafe workstations then wireless integration, and then Apps.

David created Apps from the ground up as well as maintained and enhanced others. His experience, development skills, and attention to detail led his supervisors to often seek him out to ‘fix’ the look and feel of apps previously created by other developers. His patience in fixing broken code proved invaluable.

David then spent most of his career working in the Satellite Communications industry, mainly with Global Eagle Entertainment GEE, previously known as Maritime Telecommunications Network (MTN). He says it has been an amazing experience. Projects involved software development for internal company departments as well as for external Cruise Line customers.

He became an independent contractor in 2013 and continues to provide excellent services to his customers.
