David split his childhood between England and Northern Ontario before arriving in Toronto at the age of 12. With an Anglican priest father and a piano teacher mother, a life of making music in churches was practically pre-ordained. Attending Little Trinity Anglican as a teenager was influential as David led a youth worship band from the keyboard, dabbled with the organ and had the chance to play alongside many terrific musicians.
After completing a music degree at Western University and a short stint working with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (where he met his wife Jenn) he worked as music director of Grace Mennonite Brethren Church in Waterloo and most recently St Matthew’s Anglican Church Riverdale here in Toronto.
In his spare time he enjoys playing crokinole (he is a former cue doubles world champion), watching David Attenborough documentaries and composing. In 2020, David released an album of original piano compositions called “Solitude”.
In church music ministry, David values collaboration, good relationships and musical growth. He is excited to start working with the choir and other musicians at the Church of the Transfiguration.
