About Professor Goodlife

Learn more about Professor Goodlife and the life-altering message of hope and inspiration he delivers. After high school, David Cussen, the son of an Irish immigrant, blue-collared it by painting, punch pressing, and forklift driving. David joined the world's greatest Navy in 1983, working in the material division in the supply department aboard the aircraft carrier USS Constellation CV-64. There, he earned the nickname "The Make It Happen Man" for his ability to deliver the materials when needed by other divisions onboard. He finished his tour as a Master at Arms (ship's law enforcement), guarding prisoners, mustering restricted men, and telling his shipmates to "get a haircut!"

Becoming the Professor

In 1987, David put his sea pay savings down at the local Ford® dealer in San Diego, bought a Mustang, and headed north to LA to conquer the world of stand-up comedy. He honed his craft for acting on the stage at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. David made the rounds in the greater LA area with an improv troupe, bringing to the comedy table his share of grins, giggles, and laughs.

In the 1990s, David went back to college, getting his degree in creative writing at The University of Southern California in 2001. While chasing his dream and accumulating an education, he paid his bills bartending, bouncing, and betting on sports. He continued his education, receiving his master's degree in Communication Management in 2007 at Annenberg School for Communications (USC).
