David Nelson

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1976 to a sports-mad family, David spent a happy childhood playing football (soccer), cricket, tennis, golf, hockey... and following Heart of Midlothian and Scotland. After completing a law degree he trained and practised as a chartered accountant with Deloitte before switching careers to complete a master’s in journalism. Joined Diario AS in 2012, becoming Director of AS USA in 2016, where he leads teams covering soccer, American sports (particularly NFL, NBA, MLB) and all the biggest news from around the world of sport. David is fascinated by all things digital, particularly new platforms and innovative methods of delivering news, aiming to provide readers with deeper insights and bringing them ever closer to the action. He is still in love with sport, both covering it and playing it (as badly as ever) and spends his spare time attempting to explain the rules of cricket to his Spanish colleagues.
