Constructing Hope is a cause very near and dear to my heart. They educate people of color, the formerly incarcerated and low-income adults in the trades. Two of those things applied to me back in 2001 when I was given a chance to learn a trade while incarcerated for my 4th time. That opportunity was transformative, and contributed to all of the successes that came later for me. When I discovered Constructing Hope, I knew I had found the perfect way to “give back”. I have committed substantial resources to help this incredible cause, and I invite you to join me. A gift of any amount will help Constructing Hope to continue their work to Level the Playing Field, and put people to work in the trades.

There are indeed second chances and Dave joins us with his remarkable story of mental illness, substance abuse, crime and punishment and how, given his second chance, he turned his life around.

I really enjoyed guesting on this local podcast, Right At The Fork, with Chris Angelus. We get pretty deep. It was pretty long, so it’s being released in two parts.
Wow…I really enjoyed doing this interview. Big time.
Recent interview with my buddy Robert Ricciardelli at Bend Venture Conference. A lot has happened since we first met and he interviewed me in 2011. I was on my way to visit Rob one night November of 2013, but I was having a manic breakdown and we never made it. Instead, a tragic encounter with police changed everything forever.
That night not only marked the end of my involvement with the brand I created, but forced a hard restart of my life overall. Fortunately, I had overcome before, and so I was able to find my way once again.
Thanks for your friendship, Rob.
