In May 2016 David completed an unsupported crossing of Greenland’s inland ice sheet, following in the footsteps of one of his heroes, Fridtjof Nansen. The 600km-long journey across the ice totalled 27 days. Furthermore, he has spent several winters driving snowmobiles and guiding for Sweden’s IceHotel, often in temperatures dropping down to -40°C.

Beyond being a polar history enthusiast, David is educated in earth sciences and glaciology, and as an accomplished lecturer, loves sharing his knowledge about the polar regions with everyone who travels with him.
