His father's military assignments introduced him to diverse cultures and views as he adapted to life in places like Blackstone, Virginia, Washington D.C., Leesville, LA., Wrightstown, N.J., Tirrenia, Italy and Charlestown, N.H.. A principal lesson he learned at an early age from his frequent moves from the north to the south was that social truths are simply beliefs unchallenged and pragmatic to those who espouse them. He came to recognize how easily views are shaped and forged into irrefutable truths by your peers, authority figures, and vocal vacuous celebrities. This exposure to the divisiveness of often-opposing views from one locale to the other taught him the need of a good command of history to help analyze and make conclusions in social matters that are so subjective. He has had many life experiences that have helped shape his views of the world. He has been an Army Officer and seen death many times. He has lost both his parents and an older sister to cancer. Besides being in the military, he has experienced various other careers including selling insurance, being a general contractor, managing a restaurant, running a car rental agency, being a software programmer and running his own consulting company. In the 1990's after David published the book "Enable Command Performance", he spent many months on the seminar circuit appearing in most of the major cities. In San Diego, his 1991 seminar coincided with the 6-day period of rioting and murder of 54 people triggered by part of the aftermath of the arrest of Rodney King in Los Angeles, Ca. He experienced a first hand glimpse of violent rioting and felt the societal pressure to express his feelings in only the politically correct vernacular of the media. David enjoys reading and new adventures in life. He still loves to travel and view the world with his own eyes and form his own conclusions on the events and happenings of the world he lives in. David is part Irish and Scottish and stands 6'4" tipping the scales at around 225. He is happily married to his inspiring wife, Stacie. They have a two-child family augmented by 8 loving cats. Currently, they live in the town of Lumberton, Texas, an hour drive from the city of Houston, Texas.
