About me

Gender MALE
Location Sydney, NSW, Australia
Introduction My Name is David Taylor aka MAD Dave. I started MAD Balloons in 1992, and I still love doing balloons. Now I have a great team of MAD Balloonies working with me creating all sorts of sensational designs. I married my gorgeous wife Marelle in 1996, and we have two fantastic kids, Amy (15) and Jacob (11). As well as being a CBA I also have a B.Ed (English/History), and I have a passion for teaching. I am a Qualatex Australia sponsored instructor, so I get to travel around this great country of ours meeting other balloonies and helping them with their business. 2010 and 2012 were fantastic years as I was chosen as the Australian Instructor at World Balloon Convention (WBC) in Dallas Texas. It was a huge honour being chosen twice. I was the Co-ordinator of the successful World Record Balloon Drop attempt in Adelaide in April 2012. 109,000 balloons. We are awaiting the Guiness official recognition. I hope you enjoy the ideas on my MAD Blog. For more ideas and designs go to www.madballoons.com.au
