Prior to joining Marsh & Parsons, David had spent 15 years as a senior publicist in the music and entertainment industries. It was a career that took him all over the world and after a lengthy placement in Siena, Italy, David returned to the UK seeking a new challenge and to settle back in west London. A long standing affection for the Holland Park and Notting Hill areas plus a keen interest in property encouraged him to apply for a sales negotiator position with Marsh & Parsons. Having produced excellent results for both our Kensington and Notting Hill offices, David rapidly won promotion to Senior Negotiator before becoming the manager of Holland Park, one of Marsh & Parson's most successful offices.
David has lived in or around the Holland Park area for his entire adult life. Along with his wife and two daughters, he is a regular weekend face at Holland Park's adventure playground and loves nothing more than a summer evening spent with friends, good food and a glass of wine sitting outside Julie's wine bar. While he considers Clarendon Cross one of London's hidden gems, his love of architecture is indulged throughout the whole area. A particular favourite location of David's is Holland Park Mews where, hidden between two rows of elegant villas, the beautiful cobbled Victorian mews sweeps up a gentle hill. See it once and you'll see it a thousand times, in films and commercials going back decades. If you're looking for a rack of lamb or steak & ale pie, David will send you directly to Lidgates, the celebrated butchers on Holland Park Avenue, outside which he queues annually with hundreds of others for his Christmas Goose - well worth the wait. In June 2012, David was promoted to Associate Director of Marsh & Parsons.
