David began his career in the health and fitness industry and quickly was named "Mr. Motivation" by Lifetime Television and "The Master of Motivation" by American Fitness magazine.
He parlayed this worldwide reputation into the world of athletes and athletics after getting his Master's Degree in Fitness Management, where his emphasis on sport psychology led him to work as the "Mental Success Counselor" for basketball and tennis players from around the USA.
In 1990, a chance encounter with an athletic client who desired a life free of resentments against her former husband, led him deeply into the world of relationship work, with both singles and couples.
That same year he became one of the first nationally recognized Master Life Coaches in the USA, as his work was featured weekly on national radio and television shows. In 1996 David created Life Coach Universe, a Life Coach Certification organization that has certified individuals wanting to make a difference in this world from across the USA, Spain, Bermuda, and the Cayman Islands.
For the past 22 years, David has been a nationally syndicated radio talk show host with both Westwood One and Premiere Radio.
His national work as a motivational segment reporter and host in television began in 1988 with WWOR-TV, then Fox TV's "Good Day New York" as well as Lifetime Television's "The Image Workshop".
Since then, David has helped thousands of people from around the world achieve their greatest goals in every area of life. From doubling and even tripling their income, to freedom from addictions, preparation for deep love, getting the body they've always wanted, releasing long help negative attitudes, overcoming deep depression and anxiety, overcoming emotional and sexual abuse, changing careers or creating dramatic success as business owners, public speaking, as well as helping couples recover from affairs and creating a deep personal connection with God or one's higher power.
There are no topics or circumstances David has not encountered, and helped people overcome, over the past 30 years.
