David was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and began working with wood at an early age. At 14 he started hand carving wooden picture frames for his uncle who owned a custom picture frame manufacturing company. Several years later, his focus shifted to the study and practice of relief carving, and carving designs on various types of furniture. He bought his first lathe and began wood turning in 2010. David has honed his skills by attending demos and workshops by internationally known wood turners, watching videos, and reading various publications. He currently serves on the board of directors of the Greater Vancouver Woodturners Guild where he has been a member for many years, and is also a member of the American Association of Woodturners.
