His background and experience are quite varied and this is a significant part of his unique approach. He excelled in these endeavors while adding to his databank of knowledge.

As a former investigative television reporter for ABC affiliate WAAY-TV, Huntsville, AL, he became an expert at uncovering facts, researching various viewpoints, and presenting them in an informative way.

His interest in health led him to medical sales. He chose to work in the fields of cancer and heart disease, because they were the top two causes of death in the US.

He learned the latest information about the heart as he worked in the operating room alongside some of the top cardiologists and electro-physiologists in the US and Canada to implant experimental pacemakers and defibrillators for numerous clinical trials. He was ranked in the top ten nationally in sales and managed 16 major accounts with over $3 million in sales per year while working for GUIDANT CORPORATION in San Francisco, CA.

He became the number one sales representative for the west coast while serving as a National Account Manager, VENTANA MEDICAL SYSTEMS, Seattle, WA.

Using his broad understanding of science and human nature along with his ability to comprehend and combine diverse information allowed him to develop a successful system for selling medical lasers. He demonstrated his leadership as he willingly taught his colleagues how to increase their performance too. This resulted in an accelerated promotion to Manager ahead of all senior representatives. While at LASERSCOPE, San Francisco, CA he increased sales by 300% and led every member of his team to the Presidents Club.

David acted on national television shows and commercials and was a member of the Screen Actors’ Guild, Los Angeles, CA, where he learned to be comfortable whether in front of a camera or giving presentations to audiences of any size.

During Desert Storm he had a unique opportunity to observe how people behave under stress as well as honing his knowledge of leadership, service and physical and mental fitness. He was hand-picked to serve as an assistant to the Commander of all Marine aviation in the theater of operation and flew combat missions over Kuwait.

As a Marine Corps liaison officer to the Hollywood he learned how to organize facts and present them in an interesting way while providing technical advice, logistical support, and on-scene representation for motion pictures, entertainment television and documentaries featuring the Corps.
