David Eastman studied Philosophy and Psychology before discovering that his first academic love is American History, with a focus on the Revolutionary War period, including the founding of the United States and the drafting of the Constitution. He served in the Israel Defense Forces, where he patrolled and guarded the country's borders, along with other responsibilities of national security. After finishing his service, David went to work in the field of management. He excelled in the areas of financial distribution for contract employees, negotiated inter-office conflicts, and organized trips to Israel for Americans interested in learning more about the facts on the ground. He has been a featured writer for the Times of Israel online newspaper.

David hopes to bring the joy he finds in learning to students who are thirsty for knowledge. His interests are in politics, history, philosophy, and science. He spends much of his time reading and writing about the subjects he loves. David believes that traditional education often focuses on memorization and repetition, and tends to neglect the opportunity to fill the heart with joy and the mind with wisdom. He hopes to be able to use his passion for the subject of American history to imbue in students a love of their country and a respect for the men and women who built it, as well as inviting them to acknowledge the lessons we can learn from the errors of yesterday. History is the story of humanity, and David loves telling that story.
