David is originally from the Welsh valleys but has lived in Oxford for 12 years - in Rose Hill with his wife and son. He is passionate about fighting climate change and tackling our city’s housing crisis.
David believes we need to build green homes in our city in locations that allow people to walk and cycle to work. Oxford needs more homes and fewer cars. He is proud to live in a city that is leading the charge to find innovative solutions to major challenges facing the world, such as the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
David is also proud to see so many companies developing new technologies in areas like energy and medicine; however, he wants to make sure that the rapid economic growth driven by these companies doesn’t leave communities behind.
In his spare time, David enjoys playing cricket for a local club, cooking, and playing the guitar badly.
