David is one of North America's most vocal consumer advocates. Conducting over 600 media interviews a year, David has been instrumental in shaping public policy for the benefit of consumers. Instead of greeting him with "Hi, how are you?", friends greet David with "Hey, I saw you on TV again."
David is an accomplished speaker. He is a Distinguished Toastmaster, and has been published in Vital Speeches of the Day and Canadian Speeches. He teaches media relations at the Learning Library (www.learninglibrary.com) online and live at The Learning Annex. He says teaching is in his genes, "My father was a teacher, my brother is a teacher and my other brother has taught a college course, too."
David is a creative author. His latest project is Climb Your Stairway to Heaven: the 9 habits of maximum happiness. He calls it "a fortune cookie" that teaches while it entertains. In Climb your Stairway to Heaven, this consumer advocate tackles satisfaction from the other end of the telescope.
David is a lover of nature. His favorite activities take place far from the towers of the city: hiking, camping, canoeing, wildlife spotting. He says, "I've lunched with moose, snacked with ducks, shared a camp site with a black bear, and served as a snack for countless mosquitoes."
