He has written two bestselling mindset books, runs a transformational personal coaching business and is a highly-sought-after motivational speaker. Hired by top Fortune 100 companies and professional sports teams, his success coaching is helping thousands of employees and athletes develop unshakeable mindsets. In fact, he was recently named as one of the top 50 keynote speakers in the world by Real Leaders.

As a former professional basketball player, David’s ability to get into the zone and master his mindset led him to two Guinness World Records. In 2016, the Brooklyn Nets hired him as a coach to help players improve their shooting—they went from being 28th in the league to 2nd overall in 3-point shooting. In total, David has worked with over 150 NBA players whose contract earnings amount to $3.2 billion.

He resides in Marina del Rey with his incredibly talented wife, actress Taylor Kalupa.

"I appreciated your message and framing everything w/in the confidence, connections and c paradigm. As I lead my team, I’m always looking for ways to structure messaging that organizes things into something easily consumable. I’ve found that w/o tying things together, the messaging is just noise that changes from one ask or action to the next."
