Hamiltonian, husband, father, gardener, tinker, tailor, soldier, spy, comedian, chameleon, Corinthian and caricature.

David has over 14 years of professional experience in Internet application development. He currently finds himself gainfully employed at the Wise Group, an NGO providing services to vulnerable communities. Before this he was senior developer at Torpedo7 and in various roles at Run The Red, an internationally-reknowned mobile services firm in Wellington, New Zealand.

David has had key roles in some of the most successful mobile marketing campaigns on both sides of the Tasman, picking up a couple of awards (including a Webby and 2 digital Emmys) and being a finalist for TUANZ ICT Innovator of the Year for 2009. He holds a patent for authorising bill payments using text messages.

David was also a senior consultant for a major international consultancy. This largely involved sitting at a desk next to the loudest photocopier you’ve ever heard.
