David lives in Yeovil, Somerset. He discovered the joy of sand sculpting late, through his friendship with Mark, and at the age of 45 found himself helping Mark create a sand sculpture of St. Pauls Cathedral in the shadow of the real thing. in London. He was hooked. After a few more years working with Mark on various projects around the country and here on the beach in Weymouth, David agreed to invest a not inconsiderable amount of his life savings into the creation of Sandworld, to help Mark realise his dream, and hopefully have some fun along the way. To cap it all, this year Mark and David have accepted an invitation to compete in the doubles event at the World Sand Sculpting Cup in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA in June 2014.
