Dave has a degree in Biology, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Teaching, and a Certificate in Youth Work. He worked in research in plant pathology and also on recurrent affective disorder before moving into teaching in schools, colleges and universities. He came to Malta through scuba diving around twenty years ago (and has yet to see a shark that he hasn’t just released!) Together with Pam, he has lived in Malta full-time for the last six years, since retiring. He has been drawn into the shark/fish conservation field and maintains an active interest in both. In Sharklab Dave is responsible for data collection at the fish market and education events, besides supervising interns and leading snorkel tours.
