Dave Cross is the news editor for planetofthevapes.co.uk, the UK's largest online forum for vapers. He has worked with a number of start-ups in the UK vape industry to develop website descriptions and engaging content. Previously, he worked as a science teacher in England and South America, European Marketing Manager for an international chemical company and was (for a brief period of time) Northampton Town FC's Clarence the Dragon - a vital cog in the fourth-tier football machine. His writing CV also includes football, music, technology and motorbikes. Dave believes in the potential for vaping to end the blight of tobacco-related harm and the need for honest, coherent research to underpin common sense legislation. He is particularly interested in the potential of vaping to help the homeless and those with mental health conditions.
