My name is David Adam Boaz. I am a teacher, an actor, and a Motivational Speaker. I have struggled through the destructive and life-crushing cycle of addiction. I have wandered through the darkness of depression. For me, the lessons of life have been harsh and long-lasting. Those same lessons have also left me with a deep humility and sense of self, and a daily feeling of gratitude for what I have experienced and what I have been given. Through a change in the way I live and the perspective through which I view the world, I have learned to let go of anger and embrace positive action! I have used my experience as an educator to formulate a series of Directed Talks designed to share with others some of the strategies which have worked for me. Perhaps I can share some with you, your students, or your staff!
