David completed his BSc in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Cardiff University College. He then became a fast track civil servant and a government statistician. For 10 years he was responsible for the collection and analysis and presentation for a variety of government statistics. He worked for a number of government ministers managing teams of between 2 and 12 staff. Whilst doing this, he obtained a post graduate diploma in counselling and this led him to the brave decision to go to Brunel University where he studied for his PGCE in Secondary Mathematics. He worked at a variety of schools in London before joining BC in 2004. The college makes good use of his statistical skills and he teaches many of the statistics classes as well as Pure Mathematics.
