Mental High-Performance Coach and Author
As an international bestselling author and speaker, Dave has lectured at Harvard, the United Nations, and the U.S. Pentagon, as well as in Uzbekistan and Chennai, India fulfilling his mission of going “where he is needed most.” Raised by a Navy Chaplain who stormed beaches during WWII without a gun and gave communion on his belly while machine-gun fired overhead, he’s inspired by his father’s courage and faith; and carries that forward in his work.
Co-author of International Bestseller, “BE A BEAST: Unleash Your Animal Instincts for Performance Driven Results” and founder of personal development company Extreme Focus, Dave’s “mental performance” training methods are not only endorsed by the Pentagon and used by U.S. Army Rangers, Navy Seals, but also with NFL, MLB, PGA, Olympic athletes, Fortune 500 companies, CEOs, sales teams and entrepreneurs as well.
Dave certainly helps his clients get “in the zone” and stay there longer, however, it is his trademark “game ready” visualizations that help elite athletes and professionals in business allow their true talents to rise up and shine. He has worked with the LA Dodgers, Texas Rangers, an U.S. Olympic Field Hockey team, the Cleveland Cavaliers front office staff and executives of USAA Insurance; proving that these unique and specialized coaching methods work equally both on and off the field.
From the locker room to the boardroom, he’s passionate about training his clients to “think less” and allow their minds to operate at the highest levels imaginable.
Living a rich life filled with a variety of experiences, one of his most honored achievements, apart from his 34-year marriage to his wife Cathy and raising four incredible boys together, was back in 1991 when he received the Presidential Merit Award from the Grammy’s for his efforts in helping to launch their foundation’s programs, Grammy in the Schools and Musicares.
