AMNPLIFY – DB

My nickname is “The Amnplifier”. Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes that people come here for. My day to day “work” is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences.

Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some “wisdom” from my regular and constant “observations”.

Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don’t, shoot me a message on Facebook.

I also have a nickname “Gurudave” and have a new Q&A I am distributing called “Conversations With Dave – In Deep With The Guru”. Let me know if you are interested in taking it and you can take my “Fuck” Quiz at the same time.

Hope you enjoy yourself here and find something that hits you somewhere.
