He can be found on his social media handles where he enjoys a lot of following. His Instagram has almost 194k followers whereas his Facebook page has over 541k followers. 

Is David married to a wife? Any Children?

Other than being good with the knife David has mastered the art of hiding personal life matters. 

Currently at the age of 58 and going strong with health, one would guess David must have been through a fair share of relationship and heartbreak until now. However, who knows, David has never shared in any interview or TV program about being in a relationship with a lady.

To our best knowledge, he is neither married nor divorced. Even when we go through his social media accounts he has shared pictures with family. And the pictures with girls are mostly co-workers and friends.

All the evidence draws to the conclusion he is presently single. Also, there is no information about him having any children.

What is David’s sexuality? Is he gay or straight?

A celebrity chef in his 50’s and currently single has raised questions about his sexuality. 

To the answer, if he is gay? Firstly, David is not in a relationship with a boyfriend. Aso he is never seen dating any men prior. 

The man himself has not officially disclosed any information regarding his sexuality yet. We can only conclude that David is a man of a secret who does not like his personal life being the talk of the media.

David first started as a reporter for WTAJ-TV, and then moved to WOAY-TV. This move was because he was not satisfied with his first job, and he was still not satisfied with his second job.
