Bio

Building a connected fitness startup in London.

Cupcakes are so 2013. Huge fan of doughnuts. Still would rather a green smoothie any old day. Obsessed by anything remotely involving chocolate, Open Source, and the Open Web.

It's all about the hugs, dance music, and pressing buttons I probably shouldn't. I can play the spoons, was banned from Twitter by Eurovision, and have regularly cooked for 150.

Volunteer 4 years at Mozfest and increasingly engaging in the UK community. We believe in each other! 2016 is the year I smashed apart my fear of public speaking. Would love to be coached to get get better. Previously co-organising 'Linuxing in London' monthly Linux meetup and hosting Privacy Lab London helped that hurdle.

Sporadic MDN contributor, and a binge watcher of AirMo . Downloads & 1.5x speed FTW.

    David has started running the Privacy Labs in London. I volunteered to help out while I was traveling through London and got to see him deftly overcome various venue issues and moderate a panel of experts talking about the Snoopers' Charter. I later worked along side him volunteering at MozFest 2016. A valued addition to the Moz London community.

  • Stacy Martin

    David is a very gifted organizer and host of Privacy Lab in London. I greatly enjoy working with him - he makes it look easy!

    David was a local volunteer for the Mozilla Festival in 2014 and 2014. He is enthusiastic and hugely passionate about what he does. His contribution to MozPubs and MozFest 2015 is measurable and much appreciated. A true and valued Mozillian!
