David is an engineer, entrepreneur and building designer. His friendship with anti-child-abuse campaigner Robert Green drew him into both journalistic writing and activism to protect children from abuse. His reports on UK Column news concerning the fight to free Robert Green soon changed into regular reporting on injustice and corruption in Scotland and "Northern Exposure" was born. David is a Christian and travels frequently to Jerusalem and the Holyland and thus maintains an active interest in the politics of the State of Israel and of the Middle East more widely. Via his professional career he has developed interests in education and economics, particularly the Austrian School, and he speaks and writes about these matters also for the UK Column.
