Born in the west of Ireland during the glorious depression of the 1980's, David took up music at the age of seven in order to counterbalance his passion for the other great activity of the day - running around in a field shouting at things. Unfortunately for the world of professional sport, (and professional shouting), David continued to study music via several instruments, developing an unhealthy interest in the fugal and sonata forms by his early-teens.
By the mid 2000's he had completed a Master's degree in Music from the University of Limerick and was designing sound for everyone from game developers, ("your music is too weird") to interpretive dancers ("your music isn't weird enough"). By then he had also picked up a bachelor's degree in English and History from University College Cork, and had spent some time living in China where he learned two very important universal truths: China is awesome, and a green traffic light does not necessarily mean that you have right of way.
Armed with these insights, David arrived in Shanghai in late 2012, found a place to live, and then set out to find the most progressive artistic collective in one of the world's most progressive cities. A few weeks later he was able to call himself a very proud member of island6.
After a fruitful tenure at island6, Dave parted ways in 2014 to continue flexing his musical talent.
