Senior Account Manager
A huge old school Hip Hop fan first and foremost, Dave joins the Lightbox team after career in both PR and journalism, working for one of the UK’s biggest selling regional newspapers.
Graduating from the University of Worcester in 2011 with a degree in English Literary Studies & Film Studies, Dave then went travelling for 18 months, living and working in Australia, Thailand, New Zealand, Fiji and America. With a forever love for writing, Dave began his professional career whilst writing music reviews for a number of Birmingham magazines…ironically whilst away in sunny Melbourne.
Returning to the UK and qualifying as a journalist, Dave worked at the Express & Star for two years, before ‘heading to the dark side’ and embarking on a career in PR. Working for a number of regional, national and international clients, Dave has successfully delivered and driven PR campaigns, product launches and events for a host of brands, and prides himself on the personable and diligent relationship he builds with clients.
Coming into Lightbox, Dave will be account managing a number of website development projects, and working very closely with the digital team to create a PR offering for existing and new clients, in what will be a first of its kind service for the agency.
Hip Hop is his absolute religion, and Aston Villa is his absolute sin. Recently married, Dave enjoys spending time with his wife, friends and family and has many more trips planned this year!
“I love being creative, meeting new people every day, and seeing an idea become a very successful client reality.”
