A graduate in International Development he studied in Uganda in the late 1990’s and caught the bug for adventurous exploring. His travels have seen him gradually extend those initially brief holidays from work into ever-longer trips away as well as capturing those experiences in his writing and photography.

When not exploring further afield, David can be found around the hills and lakes of his home in the Lake District.
