David is a registered architect but works outside the traditional confines of architectural work and specialises in heritage + urban design advice and teaching.
David is currently a Councillor on the City of Port Phillip Council. He is passionate about the contribution architecture can make to the life of the city and believes that planning should be a force for good rather than evil. He is on a mission to make sure our cities keep their incredible historic character + cultural richness as they career headlong into the future.
David has taught architectural history + design at the University of Melbourne for many years. He is about to realise his dream of becoming an expert international architectural tour guide by giving a tour of Los Angeles, Palm Springs + San Francisco with Dr Chris McAuliffe, for ASA (Australian Studying Abroad) this year.
Outside the office, David is a keen traveller and "Rainman" standard geography nerd. He's tragically addicted to the St Kilda Football Club and never plans to be overseas on Grand Final day... just in case.
