I met Dave many years ago as colleagues, and I can say with certainty, he has changed the way I view the world. Looking through someone else's life experience - truly experiencing the way they experience the world - can be unnerving, uncomfortable and humbling. That sums up the experience I felt with Dave as a friend and colleague; but most of all, a profound sense of appreciation for true inspiration, a passion for diversity that is inclusive, understanding and works. Dave has taught me so much, and there is so much more to learn.
