GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM wrote -
Hailing from New Jersey by way of Staten Island, David is the quintessential athlete. Sports have coursed through his veins his entire life and the ones he’s participated in run the gamut from football to lacrosse to soccer to baseball, just to name a handful.
Given that his motto is, "pain is temporary", he'll no doubt be training hard for his November 16th bout.
Off the field (pitch, diamond, etc.), David is successful attorney who happens to encounter many troubled youths in the court system and he always delivers the same message to them; find a sport and dedicate yourself to it.
It’s the same philosophy Give A Kid A Dream preaches. Great minds think alike, right? Aside from giving back by way of sage advice, David is a volunteer coach as well as a supporter of various other charities that move him.
Beyond work and sports, family is number one for David and he considers himself blessed to have a very tight knit one. His mother, father and uncle are among his role models and the wonderful son and daughter he and his wife brought into the world are the center of their lives.
