About the Author

Before becoming Group Editor at John Brown Citrus Publishing, where he works across a range of launches and magazine titles for clients such as Virgin and Orange, David worked for a wide variety of consumer titles from the FT magazine (deputy editor) to Radio Times (commissioning editor).

David was one of the three-person team that conceived and launched the new Nova magazine in 2000, and spent two years at GQ magazine in the 1990s. Before becoming a full-time journalist, David worked in the music business, initially for Warner Records and then, for five years, independently as a band manager.

David has also written features for the likes of Q magazine, GQ, Esquire and the Times Magazine. For a while David had a regular slot on Virgin Radio as ‘gigs man’ and once appeared on ITV News to incorrectly tip the Teletubbies to make the Christmas number one slot!
