David Packouz was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the third of nine children of pioneering ‘Internet Rabbi’ Kalman Packouz. While living in Jerusalem and Miami he became fascinated by science, studied chemistry and philosophy and practiced massage therapy and international business. Through his immersion in these diverse fields and while traveling to many places around the world, he was exposed to many different ideas, philosophies and ways of life.
He came to realize that although we are all unique in our own way, we are also incredibly similar in much more fundamental and important respects. So to understand each other, we must first understand ourselves. This requires above all else, an open mind, honesty and empathy to see these same attributes in others. We are each a small Universe, or microcosm, unto ourselves, yet we all comprise this greater macrocosm of human existence.
He has teamed up with renowned South Florida based guitarist, bassist, producer and engineer Fernando Perdomo, drummer and percussionist Derek Cintron and pianist Alan Gabay to record his first album of original music, titled ‘MicroCOSM‘. The musical style is characterized by meaningful lyrics, harmonic buildups and soaring guitar solos. MicroCOSM comprises of songs reflecting the very personal, yet universal, aspects of his life: The search for purpose, the traps of monotone mediocrity, getting past rough times in life, the drive to achieve, the love of family and humanity, the challenge to cherish every moment of life and finding peace with destiny.
