David is the founder of Adventure Ecology, an organization that uses the magic and excitement of unique field missions to educate, entertain and raise awareness of environmental and social issues while driving innovative real world solutions. In 2006 David spent over 100 days crossing The Arctic, becoming one of only 42 people, and the youngest British person, to reach both geographical poles. Prior to this, David had already become one of only 14 people to traverse the continent of Antarctica, and was part of a team that broke the world record for the fastest ever crossing of the Greenland Icecap.David is the author of both The Global Warming Survival Handbook, Dorling Kindersley Earth Matters and the host of Sundance Channel's Eco-Trip: The Real Cost of Living. In early 2010, David will set sail on an ocean adventure of unrivalled proportions 11,000 nautical miles across the Pacific in a boat made almost entirely from plastic bottles and recyclable materials on a mission to beat waste. Accolades include, National Geographic Society 'Emerging Explorer' and The World Economic Forum 'Young Global Leader' and UNEP 'Climate Hero'.
