David is the founder of Electric Head Software, working as an independent software consultant based in London focusing on IT software delivery, developer mentoring and cultural change - mostly working with London-based organizations and start-ups.

David has previously served as the Technical Architect for JustGiving, and helped market-leading organizations such as JUST-EAT, Trainline, Euromoney and Vodafone improve their technical capabilities and culture across a variety of principal engineering and senior leadership roles. As a result of his community work, David is a Microsoft MVP in Developer Technologies.
