How it all began
After a successful military career, David decided to retire early to pursue business and environmental interests. As a professional diver, underwater photographer and technical media diving specialist he has been fortunate to see much of the underwater world and has been horrified by the damage we are doing. Having worked on the BBC Life series in 2007/2008 he ended up meeting Jo Ruxton, producer of A Plastic Ocean. He joined The Plastic Oceans foundation in 2009 where he worked as an education, science, and sustainability adviser. In 2014 he decided to start his own venture, Just One Ocean in order to be able to promote awareness of other ocean issues as well as plastic pollution.
