David was born on the North Shore of Auckland on the 11th of November, 1993.

Starting out young, David did karting for 6 years before switching his focus to rugby at the age of 12, a sport he enjoyed more at the time. Thankfully however, his dad raced speedway so motorsport was not entirely lost there.
Throughout the years, he has kept in close touch with all things motorsport before finally decided to get into SimRacing, with some help from a friend in 2017.

From there, he went on to compete at the highest level in V8 Supercars on iRacing in the V8SCOPS series, placing 14th overall in 2019 as well as a few top split special event appearances.
Still playing rugby in real life however, David invests his love for motorsport via his SimRig.
