His work aims to inspire teenagers to think about the future, safe in the knowledge that there’s nothing wrong with changing dreams and adjusting plans. His mission is to provide adolescents with the tools they need in order to consider their aims for the future, while embracing changes in their understanding of the world and adjusting their plans accordingly.
David has become increasingly aware of the absence of essential-skills teaching in schools and colleges. It was when he realized that his own life may have taken a different path if he’d had some essential life skills at a young age that he became driven to help the next generation avoid making the same mistakes he has. He is acutely aware that the focus on academic achievement takes away from the teaching of essential life skills like time management, problem solving, goal setting, and creativity: skills he knows that many parents struggle to teach their children.
David’s life has taken him through several distinct careers, beginning with performance and ending in logistics. Along the way, he passed through teaching, where he gained a clearer idea of the gaps in the education system. Having tuned into his own trajectory, he has realized that his career choices were less decisions and more impulses, shaped by societal expectations. He remembers his teenage dreams and understands the problem: they were dreams, and he knew nothing about how to plan to make them a reality.
David currently works in logistics and haulage and is passionate about making a difference in the lives of the next generation. He has a master’s degree in classical singing and performance and, despite his career change, still infuses his life with a love of music.
