He was educated and trained as a lecturer, at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, and graduated with a Certificate in Education, awarded by Birmingham University, in 1978. However his earlier life had been rather different. He and his brother Michael were both convicted criminals and were sent to prison for malicious wounding and carrying a fire arm without a license. They grew up in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, during the 60's, and they were MOD's where they became criminals. On the 16th January 1970, David had a bad trip on LSD, during which time he called out to God to help him and Jesus spoke to him.
