Born and brought up in Reading, it’s no wonder David loves Devon so much.

He started his migration west when he joined BBC Radio Bristol 10 years ago, having given up on Engineering, Economics & Management at Oxford to pursue the more inspiring dream of being on the radio.

Since then he’s been heard all over England, playing his favourite songs and "trying to make the world a nicer place".



David's a keen writer, and co-authored the Guardian-award winning blog Dayorama for many years.

He owns an old Devon bus, which he drives all over the county at weekends whenever its working.

He’s also a trustee of a Devon-based charity which looks after several vintage vehicles from the West Country.

David loves pickles, and has a halibyte memory for numbers and facts. Test him out!
