Biography

David has a diverse list of skills, from acting to 3D modelling to programming, but is a story-teller first and foremost. In 2006 he became the sole author and artist for Crimson Dark, a Sci-Fi webcomic that has over 16 million pageviews to date, and in 2011-2012 he moved from Sydney AU to Austin TX to work at BioWare, writing dialogue for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

On returning to Australia, David embarked on his life-long dream of writing his first full-length novel. The result, The Fires of Caldarus, a fantasy novel for young adults (and regular adults), will be published in March 2016.

Living with autism and long-term chronic depression has given David a unique view on the world, one he hopes that his readers both appreciate and enjoy.

David lives in the lower Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, and spends an inordinate amount of time talking to the native birds of the area. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, and a Bachelor of Interactive Entertainment.
