David's academic interest in festivals and events stretches back to undergraduate and Masters research over the past decade. He joined Edinburgh Napier in September 2007 and teaches undergraduate students in Festival and Events Management.
David has also worked on several festivals in Edinburgh and overseas, including two summers as Box Office Operations Manager at the busy Edinburgh Fringe box office. Recent additional experience in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere informs David's work at Edinburgh Napier - and has proved very valuable when discussing future career opportunities with students.
