Now living on a narrowboat and doing freelance work, David was previously employed by ITV's regional news programme for the south-east, ITV News Meridian. Before that he worked in radio on a multitude of stations.
Having had a prior career in IT, it's no surprise that he's always had an interest in online media. Today he acknowledges his inner geek by creating videos on YouTube channels Cruising The Cut, TubeshooterMag, UKAirscape and DavidExpertTV
He also runs websites to go with the channels, www.CruisingTheCut.co.uk, Tubeshooter.co.uk and DavidExpert.com
A bit of a swot, David gained a BSc in Computer Studies from Loughborough University then some years later took a degree in law for fun at the University of Kent. He got a First.
