Dave takes pride in his experience with turbulent, changing and chaotic work environments. Having taken the lead in multiple corporate turnaround projects and post merger transitions, Dave understands the challenges organizations face in challenging and difficult times.
In 2011, Dave embarked on a different path, embracing a new more challenging life experience. It was then that Dave found himself on a unique and unplanned journey associated with his youngest son’s heroin addiction. His loving commitment to help his son deal with the emotional, physical and legal challenges associated with his son’s addiction nearly destroyed his own world. Having realized the incredible, adverse impact of his son’s addiction on his own life he made a conscious decision to regain control of his life while providing a model of focused accomplishment for himself, his son, and others facing their own personal adversities.
Born out of a challenge to ride his bike for one hour for one hundred consecutive days, Dave discovered a path through the chaos that completely changed his life. In the five years since the successful completion of that challenge, Dave has discovered tremendous power in the meditative aspects of his daily rides. It is from these rides that he shares his perspectives for personal growth and development in the most difficult and challenging times.
It is Dave's mission to assist those who are faced with their own personal adversities to find a path to peace and clarity while embracing and internalizing the challenges they are facing as lessons and opportunities. It is from that place that we are provided the opportunities to share the lessons of our most difficult experiences to help inspire and teach others.
