David Kantor is a entrepreneur in the diamond business, an author and a speaker. Having his daughter Taylor, who was born with a rare chromosome disorder, opened his eyes to a world he didn't know existed.
He and his wife Leslie, along with some other parents of special needs children, founded the Bids for Kids auction to benefit Mary Bridge Children's hospital. The auction, now in its 20th year, has raised over $1 million for the programs.
Recently elected to the Board of directors of Variety Club of the Desert, he works on the Mobility Bike program, giving away custom bikes for disabled children.
David founded and still heads up Kantor Diamond Company, a hybrid diamond company that encompasses retail locations, online sales, wholesale divisions and production facilities. He tries to lead his employees by example everyday, being mindful that when they work with a consumer, that diamond is signifying a very special occasion in someone's life.
Inspired by his daughter Taylor, David wrote Gaining Perspective: Lessons I'm learning from Taylor, available on Amazon.
