For over thirty years, Dave has been focused on the foundations of wellbeing, healthy communities, and leadership. After a twenty-year career teaching courses in well-being, leadership and neuroscience in independent schools, Dave founded Applied Attention Coaching and Consulting to help individuals, teams, and organizations focus their attention and energy where it will make the greatest positive difference. Using principles drawn from modern scientific research and enduring wisdom, Dave has had the opportunity to work with leaders, executives, educators, and athletes all over the world. Perhaps the most powerful aspect of his work is how accessible and applicable everything is that he teaches.
Dave has degrees in biology and geology from Williams College, a Master’s in Humanistic and Multicultural Education from SUNY New Paltz, and a clinical internship in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
