Joined 9 years ago from Tenerife
David's family moved to Tenerife when he was the tender age of 8. He grew-up in the tourist town of Los Cristianos and attended Wingate International School.
When he was 16 he headed back to the UK to study, first A-levels in Mathematics, Geography and Computing. Then onto University where he briefly studied Maths and Geography at the University of Sheffield, before dropping out and re-enrolling at the University of Portsmouth, studying Maths with Computing.
Despite being on-course for a first class honours degree, David dropped out of University for a second time and returned to Tenerife to set-up his own business.
In 2001 he founded Sorted Sites, a small Web Development firm that quickly grew. He took on a partner and the company expanded, employing 8 people at its peak.
However, in 2006 David sold his shares and went solo once again. This time founding Nuclear Internet. A year later he aquired Web Works Tenerife. By this time David had become one of the most experienced and knowledgeble Web Development Professionals on the island.
It was also around this time that David got the hill-walking bug. He's walked over pretty much every inch of Tenerife and has been known to dissappear backpacking in odd places such as the Western Highlands and spent a Christmas trekking in La Gomera.
Since 2008 David has been working part-time as a hillwalking guide and spends several weeks a year leading groups on walking holidays in Tenerife.
David has been an avid writer his whole life, despite suffering from dyslexia and having unintelligable handwriting. He's written for local newspapers and contributed to several on-line magazines and blogs.
