David’s Biography & The Birth of BrainFocus
David Hesketh, MSc
Neuro-Medical Science & Education
Born to an Anglican priest and his wife on the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario, David was a curious, gregarious, athletically-inclined lad and he loved singing. His upbringing, he describes as ‘flexible religiosity’ but the life experience of his youth was spiritual, mostly in the outdoors: In a traditional, Canadian canoe.
He was a good student until High School which coincided with his experience of being bullied. His emphasis then became social rather than academic!
Post-high school, saw him working his way toward his goal of $1,000,000 and a Jaguar XJ-12 by the time he was 25 through such ‘careers’ as newspaper management, life insurance sales, gasoline jockeying and dispatching cement trucks.
