He studied law at Huddersfield Polytechnic, and then did his Solicitors Final Exams at the College of Law in London. He later completed a Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice Studies at Leicester University in 1998.

By profession David is a solicitor and does a lot of work as a freelance lecturer, lecturing in legal matters and also on management issues.

David was first elected to Broxtowe Council in 1999 to represent the Stapleford North ward. Following boundary changes in 2003, he was re-elected for the Bramcote Ward and became the chair of the Development Control committee. He was then re-elected in 2007 for Bramcote, where he continued as chair of the Development Control committee until 2010 when he took over as Leader of the Council. In 2011 David was re-elected to represent Bramcote but stood down as Leader. David is now the portfolio holder for Economy and Regeneration.

Away from work David is a keen musician, playing the guitar and piano and is a fan of most sports, especially football and motor racing. During 2003, David qualified for his scuba divers license, and more recently has taken up astronomy as a hobby.
