Hobbies & Interests
With his no nonsense haircut and granite physique honed in the gym, nobody in Centrus messes with David, particularly on the company’s Christmas night out. Don’t let the tough exterior fool you though. David also has a soft centre (sorry) as evidenced by the time he spent working in a chocolate factory. In other guises he sold ice cream from a van and spent a year working for Amnesty International. Since coming to the UK from his native Portugal, David has also developed a liking for David Attenborough’s TV shows on the natural world.
David says that he is still waiting forlornly for someone in Centrus to pronounce his surname properly. So for anyone wondering, the phonetic version is ser/ki/ra.
