We had the good fortune of connecting with David Christopher and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi David, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I believe a life worth living comes with risk. I’m a very driven person and I’ve actually never concerned myself much with the risk factor when compared to what I believe the outcome of pursuing a goal could be. Now I’m not saying go blindly jump off a cliff haha definitely calculate your actions with common sense and as much clarity as possible, but don’t let the fear of taking a risk stop you from moving forward. like they say, nothing great can be achieved by staying in your comfort zone. I’ve had many hard lessons from taking risks in life but all of them I have learned something from. You can become wiser, stronger and better when you learn to take risks in life. Sometimes the outcome is amazing and other times it sucks! haha but that’s life. One thing that’s for sure, if you never take a risk you’ll never know what you can truly achieve in life.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have a passion for entertainment and creating content that is exciting and inspiring. I am proud of all of my achievements on my crazy journey thus far. I have been fortunate to have had many appearances on TV shows, performing on stage alongside some of my favorite bands, to helping and inspiring people through fitness. I am also very grateful and proud to have been able to give back through supporting and working with many charity organizations. I want to be a light in this world and be a beacon for positivity, hope and strength. My journey has definitely not been an easy one. I don’t come from money or a fancy school. My family had it’s share of struggles and moved around a lot when I was a kid. My parents are divorced and I have had to earn everything I have. I have been through some very challenging, and ugly times and I have even felt defeated and lost at times in life. My passion for entertainment and my faith in God has pulled me through some of the darkest times. I always remind myself of my “why”. I don’t want to look back on my life when I’m older and it’s “too late” and then realize that I wasted my time and potential. I want to be able to help others and my family and hopefully help people avoid some of the pain and struggles that I faced in life. I am a very driven person and I have many dreams that I aim to achieve and this keeps me going! I have learned so many lessons in life that I could probably write a book haha I would say that some of my most important lessons though, have been understanding to have more empathy and patience. These two very important qualities can make all of the difference in understanding and dealing with various types of people. This can carry into business decisions, friendships, relationships, self growth and the overall processes in life that need to fully play out. I would like to be a catalyst in achieving a positive mindset, strong body and healthy lifestyle.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Definitely hit the beaches… Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice…etc, Do some of the touristy sight seeing like the walk of fame, movie studios, observatory… (If this is pre or post covid) then there’s always something unique and exciting to do in LA, like catch a live band, industry event, so many awesome restaurants and bars/brewery. Then of course, get a solid workout in at some of the unique gym’s LA has, hiking along the fun trails and close it out with a Laker or Dodger game!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to dedicate this shout out to my mother. She has truly been an angel in my life and has taught me so much. I have seen her go through so much in life and bounce back from it all so strong. She has a heart of gold and has always been my biggest fan. She is truly one of my biggest motivations for what I do.
