About David

I am an experienced, quiet, caring Christian man who loves helping people, and learning from others as they share their life's knowledge with me. Seniors usually like to tell me their stories, and I then apply their wisdom to how I live my own life. I have worked at many kinds of jobs, but most enjoyed the 4 years that I was employed as a full-time/live-in caregiver to elderly folks. I am from a very different background, growing up in a tribal African village, married to a white American doctor who encourages me to work in a field that I excel in. I am very adaptable.
