David completed his undergraduate studies at Liverpool University in History and American studies. BA (hons) 1988. After running a small business in the textiles industry David became an interactive exhibit builder for the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.

David then became the museums science outreach provider.

David has organised and presented numerous science events for schools, communities and families, working with organisations such as the BBC, Brainiac and Ecsite UK and has been responsible for presentation skill training for other staff.

David now works for the science communication company ‘science made simple’ as Northwest science communicator. David is the Northwest regional convenor for the British Interactive Group.

The masterclasses have allowed me to develop specific skills such as presenting and writing to give me more confidence in public engagement events. We’ve also been given loads of help and advice in developing our own PE activities to take into schools.
