Always a keen sportsman, particularly extreme sports David later decided to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a Stuntman. His first stunt performance was a role in the TV film Cleopatra, where he doubled for Billy Zane. Since that time he has stunt-doubled for a number of actors, including Liam Neeson, Michael Caine, George Clooney, Vin Diesel Brendan Frazer and many more.

In 2013 David won the Taurus world stunt award for the opening aerial sequence in "Batman" the Dark Knight Rises, performing an air to air ambush between two aircraft, a stunt that has never been attempted before !
