Military - Film - Reading - Adventure

I’m David (or Dave) – I don’t mind either. I’m married (met my wife in Egypt) and have three grown up sons…two serving military and one ex. I have a mixed professional background – military, government and corporate – the last 24 years or so has been focused on Human Resources. Outside of work I have a variety of interests including film (favourite is Lords of the Rings), scifi (Star Trek), books (The Hobbit), computer games (Tomb Raider), whisky (all sorts), all things crypto, extreme adventures and cars (mostly Land Rover – which facilitate adventure 😊).

I joined the Reading Mentor Team at Lads Need Dads as I recognise that for some boys who don’t have positive male role models / active fathers, they can face challenges, particularly those who have ADHD, which is something I can fully relate to also having ADHD. I hope with my experience of raising three sons and having some interesting jobs and adventures over the years, that I can bring something positive to the sessions and really look forward to working with the boys.
