Over the years, he has had the great privilege of coaching hundreds of clients from diverse backgrounds and from all over the world, including East and Southeast Asia, North America, Europe, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. And he’s been honored to have served as their guide in surpassing their relationship goals and have been overjoyed to witness some of them go on to become happily married men and even proud fathers!
David has excelled in the most rigorous programs for the study of Asia―its philosophies, literatures, history, religions, and cultures―at the highest levels possible and at the very best institutions of higher education in the world. He’s held fellowships from Harvard, Princeton, Michigan, McGill, and other first-rate schools. And from 2008-2010, he held a professorship to study, write about, and teach Asian culture at one of the top research universities in Asia.
Combine this with having had first-hand, practical experience from living and working in Asia for over fifteen years. He’s now spent about equal time immersed in the West and the East. His whole life has involved bridging the two cultures.
David has fought with Japanese yakuza, wrestled with Chinese mafia, trained in the Chinese underworld, trekked his way through much of Asia, enjoyed an abundance social life, and dated some of the most desired women in the Eastern Hemisphere.
