David won the Gold Medal at the Student Oscars, 2012, for his short film FOR ELSIE.

He made his first short film, FRIDAY, while studying for his A levels, and went up against University graduation films to win the Cambridge Film Consortium Youth Film Festival. He then pursued his passion for film at Westminster University where he directed several projects including the multi-award winning FOR ELSIE.

After the success of FOR ELSIE, David was awarded the David Lean scholarship to attend the National Film and Television School. He graduated from their Directing Fiction course earlier in 2015.

Most recently, he has been working on the Neil Cross drama HARD SUN, for Euston Films.
