David’s first experience with tanks occurred at the age of 16 when he worked in a local museum. A few years later he started working with computer game developers as a historical consultant. Since then he has worked with several companies including Wargaming’s World of Tanks, Gaijin’s War Thunder, and Obsidian Entertainment's Armoured Warfare.
Throughout this time he visited numerous archives across the country and contributed articles to company websites. In 2016 he self published many of these articles in a book called General War Stories. Which was then followed in 2018 by Forgotten Tanks and Guns of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, which was published by Pen & Sword.
He has also been regularly published in History of War magazine, and Tracklink, the magazine of the Bovington Tank Museum.
