Why you chose your animal

Shark - "Sharks are my favourite animal and much like myself they often travel nonstop for days covering thousands of miles without stopping!"


As Director of Global Operations, Dave is responsible for turning successful applications into delivered projects - not all on his own though! He manages a dedicated team based at KidsOR's Centre for Global Operations in Dundee.

"I love working for KidsOR because I get to work with a team of fantastic people, solving difficult problems for brilliant partners all around the world."

Born in Dundee, Dave now lives happily in rural Perthshire with his wife Susie and their two sons, Isaac and Oscar. When not at home or travelling the world delivering projects, Dave is a keen musician and can be seen regularly playing bass guitar around the pubs in Dundee.

Dave graduated from DJCAD with a BSc and BArch in Architecture. Before KidsOR, he worked for 10 years at a top Scottish Architectural firm taking a particular interest in healthcare design, before moving into the third sector as Director of Projects for a national children’s charity, where he was responsible for delivering National and International projects to improve healthcare provision for children.
