David quoted in The Scotsman July 3, 2001:
"I have to admit that I was very green when I first started there," he admits. "I hadn't really done anything in life and I was surrounded by all these people who were much older and had much more professional experience. I remember spending most of the first couple of years just trying to bluff it."
But it wasn't all bad. "The older students managed to corrupt me, which was great," he laughs. "Instead of doing double maths at school, I was doing something I really loved and partying in between."
