David is a Columbia, Mo. native, son of a college sociology professor, and has lived in K.C. since 1988. He is retired, with a history of a wide variety of jobs, including a career primarily in psychiatric social work. A recognition in the mid-1990’s Kansas City winters were becoming milder led to his dedicated reading on human-induced global warming, and later the Sixth Mass Extinction of Species. These twin-crises pose an existential threat to our Living Earth, offering humanity the opportunity to “grow up”, using our native creativity to move into the Ecological Age. He has a 20-year history of volunteer environmental activism, and has been a humble contributor to Eco-Radio since 2020. He is available for presentations.
I was weaned on the Top 40 of the '60s and came of age in the rock and roll hey day of the '70s. Music was an escape, an education and a driving force in the attitudes and ideals that make up who I am today.
