Yes, Lesh spent his juvenile years as a no-good hooligan, but that’s in the past, mostly. He has since moved on to flying airplanes, snowmobiling, traveling, making ridiculous videos, and raising pulses on the internet. If he looks familiar, maybe you saw him on Judge Mathis Court TV, or maybe he passed you in a box car at a railroad crossing while hopping freight trains. David also enjoys graphic design, taking photos, and creating content for social media. David has come a long way from his roots of skiing 150ft tall hills in Wiscompton to an expanded skill set including business, photography, and design.
