Inspired by the “Why” movement and the opportunity of having a meaningful impact in the lives of people around the world, David partnered with Sinek and his team in 2009.  David creates tools and resources based on Sinek’s content, designed to help others find, articulate and live their “Why.” He also co-hosts the Start With Why podcast, which is downloaded in 66 countries and counting. Additionally, David shares the message of “Why” and how to put it into action through speaking, workshops, coaching and consulting.

David earned a BA in Communication from the University of Utah and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the MBA program at Westminster College, where he focused his studies in Organizational Development.
