David holds two BS degrees from MIT, an MPS from NYU, and an MS from Carnegie Mellon University. The joke is that he graduated from CMU with an ABD (All But Dissertation). Nevertheless, he learned how to create new knowledge – arguably what PhD degrees are all about. He has over 30 years of study and practice of leadership in academia and various organizations from small startups to large, well established firms, as well as in the US Army.
David also has a lifelong interest in meditation and spirituality. He brings considerable insight and scientific training to his explorations of existence and as a result, has developed a unique and straightforward take on many esoteric topics. He was consciously aware throughout near-death experiences that resulted from strokes in 2008 and again in 2012. As detailed elsewhere, the two experiences were different but valuable. Lessons from these near death experiences continue to unfold for him and deepen his appreciation and understanding of life on a daily basis.
His work comes from an abiding interest in human potential. David offers personal support and coaching services for individuals, couples, and groups. As a coach, he focuses on supporting clients in recognizing and trusting their own deepest wisdom as a means to transcend difficulties and heal the wounds from which they arise. He has successfully coached clients through professional and job related crises, relationship issues, and personal success difficulties, as well as personal growth challenges. He also leads classes and workshops on various topics including shamanism and Huna.
As we grow as human beings, we realize that all of the different facets of our lives are intimately connected, so that healing one area often benefits others as well.
50 chapters focus on internal truth. Short on the page, they are open-ended. They are tools to be used in any way that you feel is right. Dare to explore without agendas. Laugh easily and honestly. The open inquisitiveness of a child coupled with the experience and patience of an adult is a powerful combination. Be powerful. Be you.
