Dave grew up in one of the southernmost suburbs of London, but he doesn’t like to admit it, having spent most of his adult life living on the Isle of Dogs and, more recently, in Clerkenwell. His favourite parts of London include Greenwich Park, the South Bank, Holland Park and the British Library – forming between them the four corners of an irregular concave inner-London quadrilateral. His interests include good beer and mild pedantry. Dave joined Londonist at the beginning of 2006, contributing anonymous nonsense about pigeons, bogeymen and lap-dancing clubs. Several years on, he’s still hanging around, poking his nose into various trivial or beery postings.
