MEET DAVID KINCAID
TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP COACH

Hi! I’m David Kincaid and I am on a mission to help people transform their lives that they may experience the fulfillment and joy that each of us deserves. When we are connected to our inner light, to our BEING, everything begins to fall into place. We find ourselves capable of more love and generosity than we could possibly have imagined. Our vision for a better world begins to take shape and we discover that we can lean into our passions and contribute in more meaningful ways. This is what I call a life without borders.

My own life without borders began at age 12 when I seized the opportunity to do odd jobs around my neighborhood—mowing lawns, landscaping, babysitting, cleaning pools and even teaching piano lessons—and earned $3000 so I could take myself to Europe alongside my grandmother. Since that time, I spent an exchange year in Luebeck, Germany and have worked in International Trade. These opportunities along with a passion for international peoples and cultures has taken me to more than 50 countries and I now speak 2 foreign languages!

Not all of my journey was a happy adventure. Growing up a gay man in a conservative Christian family and community did not go well for me. By my mid-twenties I had made several attempts on my life and found myself homeless and facing severe depression. By the age of 30—though I had found a way out of homelessness—I was also severely overweight, and the depression continued.

It was then that I took a new course of action and returned to University. Over the next several years I obtained an Undergraduate in Anthropology and a Graduate degree in International Affairs and Economics from the George Washington University. I was then granted the prestigious Presidential Management Fellows award and began working for the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration. After many years of promoting U.S. nuclear energy interests overseas, I became a Foreign Service Officer and then served a number of years at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia.

I came to a critical moment along that way and came to understand that in the process of rescuing myself from the rejection, homelessness and despair of my past, that I had given up being the person I was born to be and turned away from the creativity and joy that comes with being a fully expressed person. And, so, I resigned.

For the next year I traveled the world. It was during the 33 day, 500 plus mile pilgrimage across Spain—the Camino de Santiago—that I came to an awareness that the light that I was born with has been ever present and that I have been called to be on this journey, with all the terrible things it has included, so that I could be of service to others.

Today, I have a life filled with love and joy. You can often find me climbing 14-ers in Colorado or visiting friends in Europe or traveling to new international destinations, but always seeking to love and care for this incredible BEING that I am and helping others discover their own beautiful light.
