Name's David, my middle name is Van. Yes, I was born in Texas. 

Former Junior Mr. Superstar. 

My nickname at Arts School was Happy-Go-Lucky. 

I once met Paula Abdul and got to tell her that the video for Cold Hearted Snake was the reason I started dancing. 

I've only ever been to 5 concerts in my life. One was Liza. 

I prefer game nights over bars and clubs - Twitter over LinkedIn. Billy Porter once retweeted a tweet of mine, but never shared a LinkedIn post.
