Dave is a record-breaking adventurer, social projecteer, prolific video blogger, accomplished storyteller and highly engaging public speaker.

Since quitting his last job as a terrible graphic designer in 2005, he has written three books, created hundreds of short films, delivered hundreds of lectures worldwide, travelled over 20,000 non-motorised miles, founded life-fulfilling brand SayYesMore and, finally, has made up for being a total loser in his early twenties.

Dave's work is more and more focused on the power of movement, acting on decisions, reducing working hours, minimising spending and concentrating on the elements of life that keep our mental health in check and Monday mornings enjoyable.

Amongst Dave's adventures are record breaking SUP journeys along the Mississippi and around Martiniquelongboarding across Australia, swimming 1001 miles and co-founding the groundbreaking Exploring Mindset and Winter Quest projects. 

Although consistently nomadic for a decade, Dave now lives on a boat in London and in between adventures leads The Yes Tribe, a community of doers dedicated to redesigning life for the better. He blogs about adventure, living life on our own terms and maximising efficiency of choice in order to to magnify the positive impact of our work and lifestyle.
