Dave Robert Gibson is currently working as a Information Technology Consultant for the College of Arts & Letters at California State University, Los Angeles. He is a native of Massachusetts and has resided in California since the year 2001. He received his B.M. of Music Composition in 2005 from California State University, Los Angeles and his M.M. of Music Composition in 2008 where he studied with composers John Kennedy and James Newton. He is a performer of classical guitar and has studied under the renowned Matthew Elgart for five years performing in various venues across southern California. 


Dave Gibson is highly interested in discovering new technologies that can assist faculty in creating a progressive and unique learning experience for their students. He has attended several of the largest electronic trade shows in the world including the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada and the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in downtown Los Angeles, California. Since 2007 he has also served as the main advisor of the Vietnamese Student Association at CalStateLA, which is a student culture group that focuses on assisting the Vietnamese student body both on campus and in the local community to preserve and promote Vietnamese culture and traditions.  

As a composer he strives to create distinct musical compositions that deal with the absence of time and the space in which they are performed.  His work has been performed at Art Walk in Long Beach and at the original Short House in Los Angeles. He has also composed the original music for the 2012 film Reiko's Hina Dolls. As a performer he plays classical guitar in The Gibson Hernandez Duo and has worked on several indie music projects.
