David grew up in Los Angeles. It was there he went to a community college and eventually graduated from UCR in Zoology. He began teaching after graduation in inner-city Los Angeles. It is said that you learn by teaching and that was certainly the case with him. His love of learning was heightened while teaching. Watching young students get the glimmer in their eyes when they got it was a real joy.
He earned a Masters's Degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. He enjoyed the new field of work, but because he was busy teaching in China and India he didn't pursue it.
He loves working with people to enrich and empower their lives and tries not to miss an opportunity to do it.
