As a survivor of a cycling accident in 2010, he shares his experience and hope through advocacy work including a public speaking as well as his weekly brain injury blog. David and his wife Sarah in early 2015 launched TBI Hope and Inspiration Magazine, which serves a worldwide community of people impacted by brain injury. His advocacy work continues - Join us as David and I talk candidly about his journey from that day to now, and his remarkable story of survival and transformation!

The Sky’s the Limit is a motivating, inspirational program which is based on my journey from medical professional to patient, highlighting people from all walks of life and various stages of overcoming adversity, their challenges and awakening to the rediscovery of themselves, a transformation. I engage with a number of successful life coaches, authors, athletes and everyday people who discuss their journey and process as well as exploring the concepts of Eastern and Western medicine. We are all learning life’s lessons every day and living in the moment, no matter where we are in our journey.
