The Blank Page

I feel like I have been staring at this blank page for days and not really sure what to say. There are a million thoughts going through my head each day and often feel overwhelmed on what to actually write about.

On my drive home from work today, I thought about my early days of blogging and how I started with just a poem. Although today won't be a poem, but rather a determination to write a little more than I have been. So to kick off, here is a little about me:

My name is David Cluff, I was born hearing and eventually lost all my hearing at age 6 due to the CMV virus. My life changed completely and after lots of prayers, I got my first cochlear implant shortly after my hearing loss. At age 14, I got my second cochlear implant and live the dream of hearing with two ears once again. Fast forward to today, I am a father of two very energetic boys, married to my best friend, Heather! Each day we are learning more about each other and learning to raise our two boys.

Professionally, I am a CGI & Photography Project Manager for an RTA furniture company. I enjoy what I do and get to learn something new each day.
On the side, I like to do mini photo sessions with families, high school seniors, and engagement sessions. I also love building new websites for small businesses.

I love spending time with family and watching my boys learn and grow. I also love creating new videos for my YouTube Channel where I talk about my cochlear implant and life experiences.

Well...that is pretty much a glimpse into who I am.

Traveling with Cochear Implants

A few years ago I wrote a blog post about traveling and from that, I created a new video talking about what I do when traveling with my cochlear implants. Check it out!

Comment below and let me know what you do or if you have any other questions. Enjoy!

Life In Between

As you may have seen from my previous post, I started making video series about my life with cochlear implants called, "Life In Between." A few weeks ago, I released a new page on my website dedicated to all the videos be produced for this series.

A few days ago, I received an email from parents saying how much they enjoyed the videos and found them helpful. Reading their words gave me an extra boost to continue working on my videos and create meaningful content. Check out my new page for Life In Between! Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel to receive updates on new video releases.

Everyone Has A Story. What is yours?

Here I talk about an experience he had when I was 14 years old just before getting my second Cochlear Implant. We all have a story and can't judge someone based on one single moment you had with them. Through my cochlear implant journey, I have learned to embrace the challenges. It is not always easy but with the right support, anything is possible.
