Unofficially known as “the Phantom”, David loves spending his time not in the office. And who can blame him? He did start the firm in 1992 and accommodated an incredibly gruelling work load for decades in addition to devoting time to whatever his then obsession was, including flying light aeroplanes and playing competitive tennis.
If you are chasing this mysterious figure down these days, we recommend starting with a local Cross Fit Gym or a remote area of the North West Kimberley or North Queensland that has limited reception (or so he tells us).
