David is a writer and director, working in the media industry for the last 20 years. His passion for travel began as a child, when his family would pile into a motorhome and drive around South Africa for their holidays. He has also done extensive road trips through America, Europe, Canada and Australia.
His interest in travel writing grew out of an open curiosity about people, a love of history in all its gory, and an insatiable desire for the open road. David likes nothing better than to explore obscure byways and has been known to turn a short, 2-hour drive turn into a 12 hour epic – much to the annoyance of his passengers. Nevertheless, he believes that travellers should stop more often and experience the small towns en route.
He has published several travel books that mix history and practical travel information in a humorous and accessible package. All his books feature his own photographs.
David has also written and directed theatre shows (Marilyn Live, nominated for 4 Vita Awards), TV programmes, documentaries, educational videos and corporate scripts.
A long-standing film buff, David is currently developing screenplays and sitcoms. And he’s going to start working on his novel, tomorrow. A lifelong Joburger, David is also an intermittent blogger on his website and walks his dogs in the park every day.
