David Taylor was born in The Bahamas and moved to Australia at 13. He owned and managed retail businesses since the age of 17. Moving to Darwin in the early nineties, he pursued his passion for food and performance. As Chef and teacher David has taught cooking at his home, at Casuarina Night Classes, CDU and more recently with the Knockabout Chefs program for St Vincent de Paul Society. David joined Tracks as a steering committee member in 1999 and was elected as Chairperson at the inauguration meeting and served on the board since (with a small break to manage a Paspaley property in Broome). His passion for performance art has seen him assist Tracks not only on the Committee, but hands on, working behind the scenes during many performances, even on stage at times. David enjoys the cultural diversity of the Northern Territory. Tracks supports his belief in the strength of interaction and shares his vision of people, place and spirit. In 2015 David was awarded a Churchill Fellowship.
