Born in Central Pennsylvania during the Great Depression, David’s life was influenced by the economic and political struggles of the time. At home, politics, mechanics, and electronics were the central interests of his self-educated father. It had been the plan to make David into a physician; however, David’s interests were fashioned by his environment. Having attended several colleges, he received a BS degree, in spite of his dislike of college purpose and posture. David holds a rebellious nature toward narrow doctrine and limited points of view. Literature, history, and independent thinking contributed to his successes as well as failures, but it is his lifetime fascination with his watch-making creations that are most notable. Now, as an author, David hopes to exhibit the best of his perceptive view of life.
