David started his career before graduating from Bournemouth University’s acclaimed Media School. In 2001, he was awarded an internship with CNN International, where he dived straight into field-producing and researching roles. It was an unforgettable experience, as his time there coincided with the September 11th terrorist attacks on New York. He gained a unique insight into how a major broadcaster reacts to one of the world’s biggest news events.

On graduating, David worked on Channel 4’s Popworld (At-It Productions), but was quickly snapped up by ITV Meridian. As a Newsroom Journalist, he was responsible for producing daily news bulletins, however within a matter of months, his talent in front of the camera was discovered and David began presenting the travel news, and fronting his own reports and features for the flagship, Meridian Tonight programme.

In 2006, his highly-creative and entertaining style, saw him beat several network reporters to be named, ITV Young Journalist of the Year. This led to a month’s secondment at ITN in London, where he became a regular face on the ITV Lunchtime News  and even found himself reporting live outside Madonna’s house.

David then made the switch into Sports News and found himself in the middle of Reading FC’s historic rise into the Premier League. He was given exclusive access to the squad and was the only TV reporter to be allowed on the open-top bus when the team paraded through the town. He closely followed the team on their pre-season tour of Sweden, their two years in the top-flight and subsequent relegation. His voice can be heard on the club’s official DVD, Champions.

In late 2006, David was hired as a sports presenter for the newly-created, ITV Thames Valley service. His sense of humour and style made him a popular member of the presenting team, and led to him appearing at various public events, and being asked to feature in a DVD aimed at encouraging young people into Further Education.

His list of interviewees ranges from popstars, actors, and sport personalities, such as Sir Alex Ferguson, but his ability to put people at ease means he will always get the best out of every subject, whether they’re famous, or not.
