David is a double BAFTA award winning television & live event lighting designer, who graduated from London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) with honours in lighting design.


Over the past 20+ years, David has worked on large scale events such as the Queen's Jubilee Concerts, Live Earth, The Royal Variety Performance and Children In Need; through global brands including Strictly Come Dancing (known internationally as Dancing With The Stars), the X Factor and "Got Talent" franchises; music festivals including the BBC Proms; as well as major UK state occasions such as the wedding of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex & Meghan Markle, the funerals of both HRH Prince Philip and HM Queen Elizabeth II, the State Opening of Parliament and various services at St Paul's Cathedral. His work transcends every genre: live events, entertainment, music, artist performances, award shows, reality, theatre and performance art. He is lighting consultant to the Palace of Westminster, UK Parliament & Greater London Authority where he ensures the images of high-profile public figures are flatteringly portrayed on television, and that the location and surroundings translate on screen to convey the gravitas of the situation.


From extravagant & complex one off special events through to the most straightforward small shoot, David prides himself on being able to deliver excellence in design and full commitment to every project without fail. He draws on his cross-genre experience to ensure the best possible result for each production, and benefits from the highly skilled and experienced team he has assembled around him.



David is passionate about the wellbeing of those around him, particularly in the sometimes high-stress environment of show production and has recently become a qualified Mental Health First Aider with MHFA England. He is also co-founder of the charity CraftAidUK which rescues and supports street children in Kampala, Uganda.
