Tech Talk America & David A. Cox:
A Brief History
I first started Tech Talk America in 2011 from what was previously a laundry room. It has changed a lot over the years and I wanted to share a little bit of that history with you.
I grew up in the town of Natick, Massachusetts. Starting in the second grade, I experienced a situation that would eventually turn into my version of "Groundhog Day." I would be in the middle of a class when a teacher from a different classroom would interrupt to ask if they could "borrow David" to solve some sort of computer problem.
It wasn't until middle school that I discovered my other passion; Video production. Just before I graduated from high school I single-handedly filmed, edit, and produced my graduating classes video yearbook. This task was normally tackled by a team of 12-14 students.
Upon graduating from high school, I went on to earn a degree in video production from Emerson College which eventually took me to Hollywood. Shortly after, I decided Hollywood wasn't my style and life ended up bringing me to Provincetown, Massachusetts.
Tech Talk America was the result of marrying my two passions into a "dream job." The best part of my job is being able to maintain 100% creative control over the final product. To date, I have produced over 500 tutorial videos that have accumulated over 81,000,000 video views. I love my job and feel very grateful that I get to do this for a living.
In 2014, I started an experiment by the name of "Droning Provincetown" which involves my turning real-life events into elaborate musical montages through the ART of video editing.
While filming some of these videos I will film, direct, and edit hundreds to thousands of people. I get them to lip-sync lines, do simple dance moves, and then edit it into a giant musical creation.
Provincetown is a New England town located at the extreme tip of Cape Cod in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, in the United States. It is a small coastal resort town with a year-round population of just under 3,000, Provincetown has a summer population of as high as 100,000 during the Carnival Parade. Often called "P-town," the town is known for its beaches, harbor, artists, tourist industry, and its status as a vacation destination for the LGBT+ community.
