David Watts

David Watts considers himself to be a life-long student.  As a former Emergency Medical Technician, and Windows NT Network Engineer, David found himself saving lives in the hospital and in the office, where a client’s hard drive was their life.  Today he saves lives in more of a mental sense.  Having worked in entertainment photography, medicine and computers, David’s heart has always been with his college major, Psychology and Social Sciences.  David Watts is a pioneer in the new field of study, Formulathetics.  David’s study of Non-Verbal Communication and Paralinguistics over the past decade, has led to the creation of this new study in the field of Social Sciences. Outside of his academic work, he is a father of 5 children and 1 grandson, and avid photographer.  David loves comedies and wants everyone to enjoy life to its fullest extent possible.  One thing David says he knows for sure; we can all live happier, richer and healthier lives if we are willing to challenge our beliefs about who we THINK we are and what we are capable of.  GOD has given us power beyond our belief, and David breaks down Quantum Physics, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Faith with Emotional intelligence and the destruction of negative self-talk.  David will give you the tools you need to change your life and the lives of those you love, with humor and a dose of common sense.
