I'm running out of time ...and I'm scared

I’m still seriously struggling with Lyme Disease and my doctors don't know why I'm not getting better. And what's more, I'm embarrassed to admit that, on top of that, I need HELP!

(Please understand this is incredibly difficult for me. No one warned me that the awkwardness of having a chronic condition would actually get WORSE over time.)

I've been scared and panicking about my living situation since my Disability claim was denied..
And now I'm running out of time.

I need a PLACE to live!
I need a place to live starting at the end of THIS MONTH ( JULY ).

I’ve been denied every form of public assistance I could apply for.
All housing programs in L.A. are either overrun or discontinued.
I've simply run out of ways I can help myself.
I AM DESPERATE. PLEASE..

There is a small amount of money I can offer for a place to live. I will give everything I can.
I would love something permanent or long-term, but even having a place to live for 6 months would be amazing.

If you think you might be able to help me (or know someone who could), please send me a message and I will give you the details of what I can afford, etc..

It terrifies me to admit this because just two years ago I confessed to being sick and unable to support myself, and I just can't believe that now I have to go through it again..
It’s so overwhelming, it brings me to tears.
Ugly horrible embarrassing tears.
I made the mistake of assuming I'd be better by now. I was foolishly counting on being at least well enough to work a little. I never thought I'd still be this weak after a year and a half of treatments…

I pray someone will help me find a small piece of stability!

I hate showing you all how weak and helpless I still am, but I TRULY need your help.
I fight with myself all the time thinking; I should be better by now! There are parts of me that feel like I’m letting down everyone who has helped me because I haven’t regained my health yet. I know it's irrational, but fear will make you think all kinds of stuff.

Lyme Disease is hard enough to bear without also being so vulnerable to what the world demands just to survive. People tell me I'm strong, but not having a place to live is more than anyone should have to bear.

This is all so embarrassing, but I can't imagine a worse fate than allowing fear, shame, or my own pig-headed pride keep me from getting the help I desperately need.

A great friend has taken care of me for the past year, but he just can't afford to continue keeping me sheltered.

PLEASE, Help me
I’m running out of time
If you haven't read Michael Nice's rant yet, go check it out now!
He is NOT pulling any punches in this one! :)
New Rant!!

It's getting harder and harder to undermine your ideals, but I'll give it a try!
I love what Don is doing for the Salsa world! I wish his classes were mandatory at Dance Studios!!

Let's help spread the word about what he's doing!

I guess in a weird, dark, dismal kind of way, I'm lucky.
Some people live their entire lives without being tested. They carry on day to day as they should, but without ever being truly challenged; to find out what they're made of.
...I'm lucky in that way.
I've struggled a lot in my life-time (most of it I probably brought on myself), be it financial hardship, emotional trauma, or even just the wear and tear of perseverance (an artist's greatest weapon). I've fought, won, and basked enough for ten life-times and I'm only 35.

I'm lucky because I get to learn who are my true friends. Most people, I imagine, do not receive such a luxury. Because of my current uncertainty, need, and fears I have no choice but to lean on those around me; for food, shelter, advice, and companionship. I was surprised at who turned away. I was hurt by them in a way I cannot describe yet because I still cry over it most days. How could they abandon me like that??
...But I am lucky.
I'm lucky because I get to see the true colors of those in my life and have been equally as surprised to find out who will run to my side and offer whatever they can to comfort me.

Some people go their whole lives without falling in love. I've fallen in love more times than I deserve. Some people will never know the pain and delirium of losing love. I know it everyday.
...I'm lucky like that.
At least I try to see it that way. I don't actually believe that it is better to have loved and lost, etc., etc. But I believe that I am lucky to have been loved.

I've heard that expression about walking in another man's shoes a lot. To be honest, I kinda feel like that's what I'm doing now; like this life I wake to everyday should belong to someone else. I'm supposed to be powerful. I'm supposed to be beautiful. I'm supposed to be a hero.
...So I say I am lucky.
I'm lucky to know the darkness so I can bask in the light again someday. But this time, I'll do it with style :)
I'm lucky to know loneliness so I can be a better friend. And this time, with more humility and maybe some better jokes.
I'm lucky to learn that even though I may have great strength, I am not a strong man. But it's ok. You do not need to be strong to be great.
And God help me... I wanna be great.

But for now, 'lucky' will have to do.
This is one story, of many, about why I'm still sick.

I have a HUGE announcement...
This is extremely hard to say… but I need to leave California and move back east to Connecticut. My life and my health have both taken unexpected turns. Without going into details, I'll just say that they've become unpredictable in ways I can't ignore and need to face head-on. I've decided the only plan of action that makes sense now is to move back home to be with my family.

This makes the last bit of the fundraiser incredibly important because we can't afford the total cost of moving on our own. We need your help! To try and keep the cost down I've already decided to leave behind most of my stuff and just take what I can fit in my SUV (something that both scares and saddens me beyond belief because after my last few years I can't help but be sentimental and attached to my things).The only problem we're facing is the costs of moving. My car needs repairs if it's going to make it cross-country. Plus there's the gas, food, and hotels along the way. Thankfully my friend Matt from CT is flying out here to make the drive with me.

I will need to leave very soon- right after Christmas. The only question is how to pay for it all. So I'm asking you now to help me finish this fundraiser. With the money I could fix up my car so it's safe to drive and then I could be able to make this move right and still bring some of my belongings with me. I'd be able to make this tremendous move with confidence and dignity. We've looked at a million other options for getting from here to there, but the best option is to drive. My car needs almost $2,000 worth of work so it's really holding us back.If we can raise this money and fix my car, I'll be driving in a safe vehicle and I can even hang on to some of those pieces of my life- the physical remembrances and objects that remind me of better days and make me feel like a real person- personal things that would break my heart to lose. I want to be able to make this move with my head held high. I hope to be able to leave this wonderful place on my terms. Rather than in a whirlwind of sadness over losing everything- I want to be able to move TOWARDS something better, and hopefully take with me the things that have immeasurable value and will be my comfort and foundation when I get to CT.

What I'm saying is that this is my last plea for your help. I need your support to do this terrifying but necessary and important thing. I'm finally ready in my mind and heart to take on this move toward a new life path- a choice that was not easy to make. But without this last push- this last bit of help from you my friends, family, students, and everyone who has been there for me more than I ever thought possible... To put it plainly, I need your help.
Please, give whatever you can. Every last dollar will help me to finally begin forging my new path and my new life. We're less $1,000 away from the goal and that feels so close! Anything you can give will help more than you know. Thank you so much!!!

P.S.-The second part of this update gets into more personal details. Honestly, it’s more about me just wanting to express myself than anything. No pressure to continue reading :)I am extremely scared- a nervous anxious wreck most days. There’s been way more crying than I like to admit. You see, part of what's happening with my life is that I've realized my body and brain aren't able to do the things they used to, so its very probable that I won't be able to return to a career of dancing any time soon, if at all. This hasn't been easy news to take- dancing is all I'd ever planned for and I'm more than a little lost without it. I've been blazing this one path all these years that now I'm not even sure who I am if I'm not on it. I need to readdress my life, my path, and even my "Self". And I realized the best (and only) place to do that is back at the beginning.. back in the place and with the people I came from... with my family in Connecticut.

San Diego hasn't worked out the way we'd planned because the things I need in order to grow and find strength aren't here for me after all. And frankly, I'm extremely unhappy here. At this point it's in Connecticut, with my family, where I'll have the best hope of making it all work.

It’s because of everyone that's helped me that I know it's the right choice. With all the unbelievable support I've received from everyone this far, I've been able to fight to the last to stay here in California. I've been so blessed to have had the opportunity to fight for my dreams and goals. I cannot express how grateful I am about that. Because only after expending every resource and making every effort imaginable can I say "I never quit."

Thanks to everyone's generosity, I know that I will have no regrets. I won't have to wonder if I could've done more. It took this surreal experience and an arduous amount of time to lead me to the realization of where the next steps of my life should be taken. My life needs healing just like my body and brain do- and the place I can find all of it; the doctors, the therapy, the perspective, and the support, is back where I started- back to my beginning.

I'm very lucky to have a family as supportive and wonderful as mine. I love them all so much and really need them right now. So, because I couldn't convince them all to move out west with me, I'm moving to Connecticut to be with them.

Lastly, to my Angeleno family,
I cannot put into words how much I will miss all of you. You have all, in your own ways, given me a feeling of belonging that I’ve never found anywhere else. It’s like L.A. is an entire city of soulmates and kindreds. I have always, my whole life, felt like I just didn’t belong. But then I met all of you… and you made me feel like family. You may not have even realized it, but I have leaned on you for courage and found strength through your kindness. It’s why even on the nights I couldn’t dance I would still come out just be in your energy and feel that sense of community and acceptance. I have loved my life in Los Angeles more than I can express- but if there’s one thing I will say, it’s that I know exactly who they mean when they call it the City of Angels… it’s you guys, all my wonderful friends.

Damn…

I truly wanted to keep writing- I feel like there’s so much more to say! But I am literally tearing onto my keyboard as I’m typing this so I better stop.
I will miss you all SO DAMN MUCH and the incredible, unreal, unbelievable, blessed, amazing life I got to have with all of you here in California.Thank you for making my dreams come true- even if it was only for a short time.

Let's help David reclaim his life!

This month I got the closest I've come yet to giving up my fight to reclaim my life.
I'm not proud of that. These past months have been significantly sad and lonely. I'd become so overwhelmed by everything that it started to feel like I'd never be good enough or strong enough to fix my life- that I was just too far gone.. a lost cause.
There was a day only recently I cried myself through the morning and said out loud, in total defeat and the kind of surrender that would break your heart- “I can’t do this anymore! I give up.. I just don’t care anymore what happens to me…”
Several hours and a full box of tissues later I knew I needed help- I cannot continue like this alone. The emotional stress is hard enough but every month when I need to once again ask for help from my family, friends, students, community, and even strangers- when I need to beg for money, it’s heartbreaking. However I am well aware that my success isn't something I can accomplish alone yet. So please, any help you can give will mean everything to me!
Please keep reading though because there’s some great news to come in this post- there’s some good things on the horizon.
The reality of September though is that my Welfare was officially denied. I’m picking up any work I can and I’ve even sold some furniture but as of right now I am $400 short on my rent and utilities. Welfare used to cover a bunch of that but unfortunately I am no longer eligible for any of their standard assistance. I’m tracking down some other possibilities but those will take months to get an answer.
Please know that asking for money is mortifying- to say it’s humbling doesn’t begin to cover it. But until I can get some momentum going, it’s the gift you can give to help me fight to reclaim my life from a disease that took everything from me except for you all.
Remember, anything you can give will help me. If enough people rally together and give $5 each, I’ll be set!
But let me get away from asking for your donations for a moment and share some positive thoughts and news with you. I want you to see how much you’ve already helped me and that I am truly moving in a positive direction!
Let’s recap…
…It was near 4 years of non-stop medical crap I went through... Including plenty of regular trips to the ER.
When it started getting bad, the first thing I lost to Lyme was my ability to work and dance- so along with that went my social life too. And my wonderful Dance Company projects...
-Everyone worked so hard on that last video and it’s still not done (but I swear I will finish it one of these days so my amazing WATCH THIS dancers can see how fantastic they look!).
…Then I lost friends, and people I thought would never abandon me... Some I unintentionally pushed away and others just couldn’t deal.
…Eventually had to give up my apartment, my poor Cat, and put everything I owned into a 5x10 storage space I could only access before 5pm.
…I spent 3 years living on other people's couches, in spare rooms, and even the occasional night in my car. I was living out of 2 suitcases and a very big box of pills.
…I’d become a hobo- a vagabond. My life was without purpose and certainly without money. I was suffering mentally, physically, and emotionally- but at least I was in L.A.. And I love that city like it’s family.
…But then, fighting to stay in L.A. became more difficult than I could handle so I sat down with my friend Cori in San Diego who helped me make a "Hail Mary" plan that, while still far from ideal, offered hope. Plus, SD is close enough to L.A. that I knew I could always come visit.
So I went all-in with everything I had left (emotionally speaking). This plan was solid and offered me a solid path I could take back to my life plans.
…I held my breath, folded my hands in prayer that the net would appear, and I leapt.
That’s when we launched this fundraiser. My friends and I were ready to get my butt in gear and give me back a life- a purpose- self respect- a paycheck smile emoticon
Sadly the net didn't magically appear and I ended up living in Duane's living room for almost 4 months- waaaaay longer than he had originally agreed to. It was stressful on us both having me take over his living room and I often felt like an interloper because I was so afraid of causing him any grief since he was being so incredibly generous.
…But amazingly, somewhere in there, sometime around the end of 2014, my health began improving and I could once again go out dancing on occasion and I could take long walks too! It felt good to remind my legs they still had work to do.
…And then on my Birthday in February, like a gift from San Diego herself, a friend of a friend said he was moving and his apartment was going to be available March 1st. It was scary as s*it but I signed that lease and then just like that, after 3 years of homelessness, I FINALLY had a real place to live!
A place all my own! I had a HOME!!!!
So now, there are days when I wake up in the morning, I stay awake all day, maybe even go dancing at night, possibly make a new friend or two, then head home, shower off all the sweat, and go to bed.
On days like that, I feel human again. I’ve even become so happy with how things are progressing; I requested that my Doctor lower my dosage of Antidepressants.
After fighting so hard and for so long, I’m finally moving in a good direction and feeling like a person again- growing, healing, reclaiming my place in the world…
And so me great things are happening too; I was recently chosen to choreograph a performance for a local dance company, I’ve been networking with local artists, been invited to guest teach for a Salsa event, and I’m applying to get involved with operations and events at the NTC Foundation (San Diego’s flagship civic, arts, and culture district designed to showcase San Diego’s creative community).
Things are going really well, but it’s all at risk of falling apart if I can’t cover rent and bills this month and next. The GoFundMe campaign is only $2400 short of meeting the goal- and if we can meet it, then I’ll finally be back on track. Four long years of struggle and humility and connecting to you all- the people who stepped forward to save my life by being my personal heroes… It’s so close. I just keep thinking $400 will get me through this month and if we can hit the goal I just know everything will be alright!
And PS, if anyone needs a place to crash in San Diego, let me know! If you’ve donated or helped me and wanna’ brush up on your Salsa skills, just say the word! As soon as I’m in a position to give, I’ll consider myself in your debt. My friends, my family, my students, my associates, my community, and my angels… Thank you!

General information

Our mission is to make dance accessible to everyone
WATCH THIS is committed to breaking down the notions of what dance is “supposed to look like” and instead; explore it’s infinite possibilities!

We carefully craft our music to make it appealing to dancers across multiple disciplines (including anyone who simply loves to get down!) in the hopes of fostering a community of dancers that transcends sub-divisions.


WATCH THIS Dance Study is best described by saying, "Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively." ~Dalai Lama XIV
We practice disciplined technique; but we do so to liberate ourselves rather than to conform to a specific style.
We focus on principles rather than methods. There are a million methods out there but few principles. We unite through the study and exploration of movement and space. We strive to master the principles so we can choose ANY method.
We play.
Creativity and a sense of humor are a huge part of everything we do; so play-time is a part of every practice. Without time to goof around and be our selves it’s hard to stay imaginative and hang on to that child like sense of wonder and silliness we all have.
