Hailing from an iconic Adelaide release area, David knows first-hand that great strategic planning paves the way for great communities. He is driven to leave a similar mark.

David’s dual qualifications in urban planning and industrial design mean that he can apply design thinking to problem solving. This is a non-linear, iterative process used to understand stakeholders, challenge assumptions, redefine problems, develop prototypes and create innovative solutions.

His understanding of the public sector provides valuable insight. David’s background in Local Government means that he knows how Councils function and what it takes to create policy that works. He also has a proven record working closely with State Government, developers and community stakeholders.

David’s experience as a consultant specialising in the sport and recreation sector has given him skills in master planning, asset management and community engagement. He is also great at demographics and analysis/design of infrastructure from a planning perspective.
