Au programme

Although I've now found a way (and always learning) to do everything, I sometimes need a little help. I want to share with you all of the prosthetic limbs that I use to successfully complete every task. Some of the things l'll show you I have had to make myself because you can't buy it off the shelf.

Although I'm missing my left arm, I spent 2 years at college and am a qualified 'Carpenter and Joiner'. I challenge you to try and find another Paralympic Carpenter! My experiences are really inclusive and as an LGBT ambassador I warmly welcome anybody to my online experiences!

Come prepared with questions and curiosity and lots of ideas of what I could use the adaptations for that I show you, and a creative mind for what I'm missing in my collection of prosthetic limbs so you too can overcome adversity. You won't offend me; so this is your opportunity to ask me any questions about being born and growing up missing my left arm, and the adaptations that I've used throughout my life from a Paralympic Athlete to a Woodworker. I look forward to seeing you soon!

I was born with no left forearm but was brought up to believe there was no such word as can't. Through lots of hard work and passion about sport, I went on to represent Great Britain at the highest level for 15years.

David is a 2 x Paralympian in Swimming & Triathlon, World & European Medallist, British Champion and was TeamGB's Youngest Athlete at the Athens 2004 Paralympics and Top 10 Finisher in the Rio de Janerio 2016 Paralympic Games. Along side this David is an LGBT Ambassador

My parents used to watch me when I was a little boy learning to do simple tasks and let me discover for myself a way to do things. They would only ever intervene if I was really struggling, but they never did anything for me and taught me to be resilient, determined and very independent. I'm so thankful to my family for shaping me into the person I am today

David is a down to earth person but so inspirational. When somebody like him talks about how he has overcome challenges, it really makes one realise how fortunate we are and how we should be facing challenges with a sense of opportunity to grow.

David is an interesting and friendly person who is very easy to talk to. He’s got great stories to share and it was fascinating to learn about prosthetics and how he solves problems. A great way to spend 1.5 hours!

This experience is awesome. David runs you through his story and shares his innovative relationship with prosthetics. From his first prosthetic arm at the age of 3 to current day prosthetic arm and attachments, he gives you an insight into how prosthetics work, their limitations, and how he has developed new and interesting ways to achieve life's everyday tasks. Through his storytelling he puts you into his shoes and and helps you see how simple tasks can be challenging without the right tools, but how he has always had the mindset that he can - and will - achieve whatever he puts his mind to. He also walked us through his experience as an athlete and how he attended the Games in two different sports. Truly remarkable!

THIS GUY IS EPIC! It's really a lifetime opportunity to discover such a perosn and see him do so much with just one arm! This is a motivational session for several reasons and you could just not get enough of his smiling charming face and high spirited attitude towards life. I was touched and very well connected by his stories and styles of his inventions. We made such good friends, so far one of the most unique tours on Airbnb. Best discovery on Airbnb so far!
