David was born in New Zealand and grew up a small town of Warkworth north of Auckland.
He quickly got the hang of video games from a young age thanks to his brother and never looked back. He has always been involved in FPS games etc. but it wasn’t until 2018 when he took hold of iRacing, fueling his passion for motorsport more than before.
Although David was karting as a 12 year old, he was more focused on Rugby so he dropped the racing to focus on Rugby.
Since joining iRacing, David has won multiple titles and has been competitive in high split special events, including 2020’s races 24H Daytona and the 12H Bathurst. Both times competing in the top split.
He has also been crafting away with the V8 Supercar for the better part of 2 years, scoring multiple top 15 results in the V8SCOPS and winning their development series only 6 months after first coming on the sim.
