More About David

His after dinner/lunch talks are very lively and with plenty of audience participation. Guests can bring along antiques to be featured in the talk if they like, if easier, he can use photos on a projector, or ad-lib an unscripted talk on art, antiques, classic cars and making TV shows. All with funny, real and sometimes mind-boggling stories!
