About David


Since his lifelong friend’s passing in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, has traveled thousands across North America, Africa, Asia and Australia with one mission in mind: To enhance the world one hug and high5 at a time. 


15 years later, David has now engaged with and embraced hundreds of thousands of people around the planet; discovering that within each embrace is a nourishing kernel of warmth, happiness, understanding and wisdom. 


 It is these kernels that fuel his steps forward to volunteer at hospitals, shelters, schools and other charities on his travels. 


And his evolution continues, David will be hitting the road again next spring in an effort to hug and high5 people in all 50 states in 2017!
