David joined us in January 2013, having spent most of his career in travel and tourism PR with another of the industry’s respected agencies, gaining extensive experience across a wide range of travel sectors, destinations and products. He’s represented leading international and domestic brands as diverse as the Hong Kong Tourism Board, Carnival Cruise Lines and VisitGuernsey.
His 25 years in travel have seen many highlights, among them watching England win the 2003 Rugby World Cup surrounded by 100 partying travel agents in New Zealand, climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge and ballooning over Kenya’s Masai Mara – the latter two something of an achievement for someone who is terrified of heights!
David combines a passion for travel with a strategic, pragmatic approach and a near-religious devotion to West Ham United, ELO and Game of Thrones.
“David understands our readership and is always ready with great suggestions he knows will work for us, helping us to develop initial ideas into inspiring travel features. He’s passionate about his clients and that shines through on every conversation.”
