After walking and climbing in the British hills since he was a child, Dave decided to leave his home in Yorkshire, England and explore the mountains of the world. After 5 years of travelling, trekking and climbing in some of the world's most beautiful places, he came to the Indian Himalayas. Over the next four years, in between working as a guide in the French Pyrenees and developing new climbing areas in Northern and Southern India, he explored the mountains around the Kullu Valley and came to know that part of the Himalayas as home. He now lives, when not residing in a cave looking for boulders to climb, in the small village of Vashisht. He co-founded High Himalayan Adventure with two local friends and guides in 2008.

Dev is from Burua village, a few kilometres up the valley from Vashisht. His village is famous for providing paragliding pilots but Dev also chose to take the path of skiing. As a youngster he was a National Champion and visited places such as New Zealand to train and competed in the Junior Asian Games in Japan and Korea. He is also a paragliding instructor and runs courses for locals and tourists. He has a vast knowledge of the Indian Himalaya and has completed one of the longest trips possible, a 30 day hike from Himachal over to Gangotri, the source of the Ganga River. Like Yogu, Dev has worked in the hills with trekkers and climbers from many countries for several years.
