David Nicholson was born in the north of Scotland, of English parents. He lived in English towns from the age of five, moving ever southwards until he settled in North London.
He studied English literature at Trinity College, Cambridge University, then moved to London where he worked in film journalism before branching out into other areas. He now covers business, finance, IT, real estate, sport, travel, media and politics.
David likes to think of his career as a perpetual extension of his education: hardly any subject is off bounds and his criteria for taking on work is that it should be entertaining or informative and pay well. (It should preferably involve travel, fine dining and some kind of sport, but this is negotiable).
