So that’s it on the professional front, but it can’t all be work, work, work. What does David do just for fun? He enjoys spending time with his family and particularly his grandchildren. He’s a movie-buff, particularly pre-1980’s, going to the gym and binge watching the TV hit series Suits. For diversity David also plays guitar and is a black belt in karate; which explains the full-hip replacement.
