This issue is very real and it’s something that has been occurring more and more despite cultural, social, and political commentary and movement.
About David Christel
I was bitten by the theatre bug at age 10, which eventually led to my moving to New York City at age 21 to pursue a career in dance. I worked with numerous luminaries in the dance field, as well as in opera, music, television, and theatre. I appeared on PBS Great Performances, taught at many well-known dance schools, and traveled extensively throughout Europe and Central, South, and North America.
Upon retiring from dance in 1986, I was hired by a computer-based training company and either worked on or led projects for clients ranging from American Airlines to Halliburton Oil Company, NASA/Lockheed, Northern Telecom, NYNEX, Fireman’s Fund, Boeing/McDonald-Douglas, and the Top Gun School when it was still located near San Diego. I also taught offices in Canada and throughout the U.S. in computer-based training methodology, design, technical writing, and on-line course authoring.
In 1982, I began working with Persons With AIDS (PWAs) in New York and upon moving to San Diego, co-founded the AIDS Response Wholistic Health Program at the LGBT Community Center. I continued working with PWAs and their families, as well as facilitating numerous support and therapy groups and leading seminars in identity building for people in recovery from substance abuse.
I have been a ghost writer, editor and book coach for over 20 years, and currently live in Nevada with my partner.
