David is a music supervisor for film, a songwriter, and a former music journalist and arts television producer.

He has a high profile in Ireland for this talent, thanks to appearances on TV and radio, and hugely popular amongst schools and libraries. He is often stopped in the street by people asking him to talk backwards.
