After some time out travelling, since graduating from a Business Studies and Law Degree, David finally returned to the UK in 2008, at the start of a recession. This, coupled with a relatively unconventional CV, meant that it was extremely difficult for him to find work. After over 25 interviews he finally managed to get a job in sales working for a large loft and cavity wall insulation company. It quickly became clear that selling loft insulation was difficult, as it meant most homes would lose all of their storage space. This is what prompted David to try and find a simple solution to the problem and so he invented ‘Loft Storage Stilts’. Two years later it is now available in all B&Q stores across the UK.
