David has had a lifelong passion for writing. As well as authoring on this website he is a contributor to the on-line forums for the HSS http://www.humanism-scotland.org.uk/ and the BHA http://www.humanism.org.uk/home and also writes specially commissioned articles for magazines and various professional blogs.

He is interested in screen-writing and storytelling as a medium for the teaching and development of moral, spiritual and philosophical insights, has studied Philosophy and Theology at The University of Edinburgh and is plans to continue his education by being open to new and upcoming mind enhancement tools as well as more traditional avenues such as the University environment.

He has had Management and Project Management Training and Experience which has been enhanced with Counselling Skills and a variety of experiences in dealing with staff welfare and needs.

He has extensive experience in the administration and clerical field as well as teaching, and has participated in award winning work-place schemes and Quality Assurance processes.

He is an individual who believes that we are all essentially powerless over the final outcomes of our lives and can only swim with the tides we find ourselves in.

His character is notable for its willingness to take responsibility for whatever aspect of work he is involved in; whether it is writing, daily administrative procedures or longer term strategic and philosophical goals.

He also plays a little; and watches great TV shows such as LOST, Millennium, True Blood and In-Treatment and at long last- Life On Mars-which is right up his moral street.
