David's early career includes a brief stint as a teacher. He taught at the Alexandra Adult Centre for two years and for another two at the St Andrews School Adult Tuition Programme. David also passed on some knowledge to the pupils at the Alexandra High School as an Economics teacher - with fond memories - because he matriculated at this school - and later worked as Assistant Manager: Human Resources at the Alexandra City Council where he spent five years.

In June 1999 he was invited to the United States of America on a multi-regional programme to expose individuals from developing economies to Entrepreneurship in the US, through the Small Business Administration programmes.
