Professional Speaker and Author
Dean is passionate about the underdog and the person that has the odds stacked against them, but still comes out triumphant. Dean was the underdog in life. He lost his mother to cancer when he was only 10 years old. He endured sexual abuse during that same time. And then he had to fight for his own life at the age of 19 when he was diagnosed with leukemia. Life was stacked against him, but his will to win took over and allowed him to no longer be the underdog. As one of the world’s longest surviving bone marrow transplant patients, Dean speaks to groups of all ages and backgrounds bringing a message of hope. With raw honesty, humor, and passion, Dean’s ability to connect to audiences creates a drive for many to overcome all challenges. As an advocate for campaigns such as Be The Match, Dean has made it his mission to create more awareness for bone marrow transplant donor needs, and will continue that effort as long as it takes. Dean lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin with his wife Carrie. Together they have three kids, Derek, Kaeli, and Kort. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay with a degree in Business. He received his PHD in LIFE from Challenge University, a school no one wants admission to. Also the creator of the Courage Heart, Dean has launched a clothing line featuring the design and donates proceeds to different charities.

Professional Speaker, Author, and Fitness Expert
After enduring some personal losses at the age of 10, David turned to alcohol to cope with his emotional pain. Later in his student years alcohol use was a gateway into drug use, and both began to be a major part of his life. After his second OWI--both of which should have killed him--he began to evaluate his life's direction during a walk home after being released from jail. David looked in a mirror and realized if he didn't change his ways, he'd die young. He began to focus on fitness, and made it his life's passion. His life now had purpose, and he quickly realized he had a duty to help people accomplish their goals--both fitness and otherwise. Relatable and connectable, David's story resonates with people of all ages. It's never too late to make a difference in your life, and sometimes, a change can save your life.
David is the founder of EverydayFitness101, where he shares his fitness passion with others, no matter their personal fitness levels.
He and his wife, Kristin, live with their three girls near Mishicot, Wisconsin.
