David Andris
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. (Theodore Roosevelt)


David graduated from the New York City campus in 2006. Since that time he has worked in a number of capacities in the music industry from a national product specialist for Melodyne to engineering.

The part David loved most in his role as a product specialist was teaching, which brought him back to SAE in 2011 as an adjunct instructor. David says “I am so glad to have been able to help students achieve their goals of working in the entertainment industry over the past decade”.
