David R's Kids/Family Industry Experience

2 Projects Completed

Since discovering that his daughter suffers from Celiac disease, David has made many changes to accommodate his daughter. He has followed as gluten free a lifestyle as possible and makes every effort to ensure that his daughter's risk of contamination is minimized. He has researched ways in which he can make her life as normal and inclusive as possible when it comes to eating and always ensures that friend's parents have all the information they need prior to any party or social event.

Specialties

David specializes in creative writing with a marketing focus. He believes that all marketing is narrative and that the best way to attract potential clients is through a strong story well told. He has a strong line in dry British humor that endears him to his friends.

Interests

David enjoys vegetarian cooking and brewing his own beer. He is an avid reader of historical non-fiction and is currently immersing himself in the field of mixology in order to indulge his taste for fine, hand crafted, classic cocktails.

Education

University of Lancaster

A traditional three year British Bachelors degree with an emphasis on Human Geography.

Bainbridge Graduate Institute ( Now Pinchot - a university for the common good)

The first MBA to integrate the field of sustainability into every aspect of the course, from Accounting and Operations to Economics and Strategy.

Relationships

3 Projects Completed

AS an active member of the online community and someone who is recently divorced, David provided this blog post for an east coast law firm who specialize in handling divorce cases. He drew upon his personal experience and applied some common sense to a situation in which many people lose the capacity for rational thought through no fault of their own and often look first to exact revenge on their soon to be former partner with little thought as to the consequences.
