David joined The School of Life out of the belief that western philosophy offers individuals the wisdom to develop both the emotional and rational aspects of themselves. Taking philosophical disciplines out of academia’s narrow definitions, David hopes to be able to help people open up to face the challenges in their own lives, believing that self-reflection is paramount to doing this. Hence, The School of Life is a much needed addition to Taipei’s educational landscape.
Education and learning is an on-going process for David. He is the co-founder of Abbey Road English and has worked in education for over a decade. In his younger days, David enjoyed success as a rock n’ roll musician, releasing several albums. He still enjoys playing the guitar and performs occasionally. David also enjoys painting, hiking and practicing qigong.
