The accountant who turned into an escapologist. This is Dave Diamond. Dave qualified as an accountant in 1987, he was also an ultra distance runner, racing over distances of over a 100 miles. With his running career coming to end through injuries, he decided one bizarre Saturday afternoon to learn to eat fire. Having enjoyed this and attending monthly fire jams, people were encouraging him to perform. Which at this stage he had no interest. Instead he went on a circus skills shop, this was where for the first time he was placed in a straitjacket. The rest is history as they say.
