Qué harás

I don’t have a left forearm, so I’m always finding new ways to do things. I often need to use different prosthetic limbs to complete different tasks, and sometimes I need to make the things that I can’t buy off the shelf.

I spent 2 years at college and became a qualified 'Carpenter and Joiner', so I have experience and learnings that I’d love to share.

In this experience, I hope to bring you in on this process, show you how I do things, and hopefully inspire you to be a bit more creative in the ways you overcome different challenges in your life. Also, please share if you have any ideas for how I can do things better! This experience is great for groups or a team-building activity and group problem solving and creative thinking. Use the chat function, engage in my polls and play along with zoom reactions!

Feel free to ask me any questions about what it’s like to live without a left arm. Don’t worry, you won't offend me; so ask away!

Be sure to come prepared with lost of questions and ideas! I look forward to seeing you soon! Please check out my reviews beforehand too :-)

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 for sport, I went on to represent Great Britain at the highest level for 15 years.

I’m a 2 time Paralympian in swimming and triathlon, a World and European medalist, British Champion and was Team GB's youngest athlete at the Athens 2004 Paralympics, as well as a top ten finisher in the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Paralympic Games. In addition I’m an LGBT Ambassador.

My parents used to watch me when I was a little boy learn to do simple tasks and let me discover a way to do things for myself. 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 them for shaping me into the person I am today

It's a really wonderful experience! David is a creative person and he demonstrated different prosthetics and how to use them. He is very kind to answer my questions very well. As I'm not a native speaker and my English is not very well, David explained every part very patiently. It's a fantastic online session and I would like to recommend this experience to all, as you will gain a lot from it!

It was wonderful talking to David. It was fascinating to learn about the mechanics of different prosthetics and to see David demonstrate their versatility. He also gave a lot of opportunities to ask questions so it was a very interactive session.

This was a great and very enlightening experience with lots of time for questions and discussion around David's experiences designing and implementing prosthetics. Truly unique and highly recommended.

It was great speaking with David 1:1 to hear his journey, and learn what makes him the "can do" person he is today. His spirit and messages are especially relevant during the Covid-19 time, when resilience and how we embrace the new normal play a critical role, dictating the quality of our well-being, and potentially enhance the well-being of others too with new perspective of what we can offer to others. Thank you David for sharing!

It really was a great experience .. John and I enjoyed the very honest actual account of David’s journey .. it was inspiring educational humorous and enlightening . John particularly related to the engineering parts and the challenges David havs overcome . His message of concentrating on what you can do not what you can’t is something we live by so that really resonated with us . Thank you sue and John

This is a really enlightening experience about the amazing life of David & the obstacles that he overcame. Experience is a conversation between you & the host in his home where he shares with you the various prosthetics that he wore &/or developed himself to complete a specific task. The prosthetic for tennis is so cute!
