As you know by now I have set myself a challenge to be more of a cheerleader for the wonderful human beings that surround me, inspire me, encourage me and generally give me hope for the future. So with that in mind every Wednesday I aim to share with you the profile of some fabulously divine human beings so you too may share in all that they are and bring to the world.

Welcome to #WonderfulWednesday No. 19

Todays utterly divine human being and I met ages ago, can't remember the exact moment but have a fair idea that it was in an old church at about 3am one weekend ....

So let me introduce them to you by sharing 10 things that totally captivate me about them:

1) They are off the scale creative  

2) They demonstrate ridiculous amounts of determination   

3) They are sensitive to the spirit  

4) They don't follow the crowd 

5) They are sacrificial 

6) They see beauty where others don't   

7) Drum sticks were made for them  

8) They feel the rhythm of creation   

9) They take risks 

10) They curate moments of joy for the world 

Who is this #WonderfulWednesday human you may ask ...

Dave lives, works and plays down here in sunny Bournemouth which is utterly perfect for him because one of fav things to do is to head to the beach and capture the Glory of a sunrise or a sunset. Some days he manages to capture both on the same day! He earns his bread by teaching young people how to feel the rhythm that music gifts to them and is generally found travelling around town curating beautiful music that generates moments of joy and peace for others.

In fact why not find a comfy seat, take 9 mins 41 seconds hit play on this, sit back and close your eyes as you experience what this magnificent man is all about ...

Dave has no idea how wonderful a human being he is, if you try to tell him he is so humble he'd shrug it off and try to avoid the conversation. He is what these #wonderfulwednesdays are all about!

Truth is he is ridiculously special. In the clip above he plays all of the parts, he edited it together and produced not only such a beautiful piece of music and film but he did this in his free time just because...

You can check out Dave's brilliance on Facebook or Youtube or Mixcloud you wont be disappointed!
