He graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in Civil Engineering and went on to the University of Edinburgh to receive his Masters degree. In 1997, David moved to the United States and worked in a number of different fields from robotics, to artificial intelligence, to designing trading systems.

David and Nino were introduced 20 years ago by mutual friends, quickly became inseparable, and their family grew around them. David lived his best life. He was a loving, dedicated, proud husband and father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. David was curious and passionate, hard-working and fair, as quiet as he was funny and prone to fits of giggles. He loved music, cars, rugby and football, good food, and corny dad jokes.
David was predeceased by his father Gavin. He is survived by his wife, Nino Badridze and their children Ailie, Anna and Ewan; his mother Aileen; brother Fraser and his wife Juliet; nieces Emma and Lucy; his parents-in-law Nelly Gedevanishvili and Jason Badridze; brother-in-law Giorgi Badridze and his wife Tatia Imedadze; nephews Luka and Sandro. David will also be missed by many extended family, friends and coworkers. In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of David may be made to Planned Parenthood.
