About David: 

David started playing pool at the age of 15 and immediately fell in love with cue sports. He won numerous junior and under 21 state titles before completing a university Honours degree in nanotechnology, in 2008. His dedication to excelling then showed through his pool game, which improved out of sight upon returning to American pool and started going deep in almost every tournament, making multiple tournament finals in a row before winning his first national title in 2010.

Throughout his career David has successfully balanced pool with study. While undertaking a physics PhD under one of the highest scholarships in South Australia, David has won a further 6 Australian pool tournaments and represented Australia overseas multiple times. His career highlights so far include winning 5 out of 8 matches at the 2012 World Teams Championships in Beijing and beating Huidji See at the WPA 2011 World 10 Ball Championships (then Huidji proceeded to win the title) and Darren Appleton/Daryl Peach at a 8 Ball scotch doubles match in the 2012 World Teams Championships. 

 David is proud to have represented Australia at the 2014 World Teams Championships in Beijing. After completing his PhD in 2015 David hopes to travel overseas to either America or Europe for more opportunities to not only further his scientific career but to also further develop his game and potentially turn professional or semi professional.

Quote from David about OB:
