I am as beginner as they come, and right away David made me feel comfortable. He's very good at bringing you into this world where things seem to be a reality because we base them on reality. He's outstanding and we've seen progress already!

He is exactly what I was looking for. We are very close in personality so it was extremely easy to open up and understand what I was learning. I am more than excited to continue
