Meet the BSK StaffInterviewer: Hi David! Can you tell me a little about where you are from. Where is your hometown and where did you go to school?

David: I was born and raised in Walnut Creek, California where I attended Ygnacio Valley High School then Diablo Valley College. I received my chemistry degree from Fresno State University in 1991.

Interviewer: How long have you worked for BSK and what do you do for the organization?

David: I’ve worked for BSK for 33 years. During this time, I’ve been fortunate to have worked in Organics Semivolatiles & Volatiles lab, Wet Chem, Metals department, and Microbiology. Today I work in Technical Services where I work with the analyst to figure out issues that arise in the lab.

Interviewer: What do you enjoy most about your job?

David: Each day brings unique challenges and I enjoy solving these problems with the staff.

Interviewer: Can you tell us your favorite on the job story?

David: Preparing for the move to our new facility was very difficult and we went through some very challenging times. When the move happened, I was amazed to see how all the lab personnel came together and worked as a team. I was proud to see the staff work cohesively and execute the moving plans and problem solve issues along the way. Adversity brought us together and we are a stronger team because we persevered together.

Interviewer: Thank you so much for answering all these questions today. Can we leave off by you relaying some fun facts about yourself?

David: Fishing is an escape for me and recently I’ve been introduced to bass fishing from a float tube. The best bass fishing is when it’s very hot so now I look forward to the heat of Fresno. What I do for “excitement” is to give my oldest daughter driving lessons. I can now appreciate what my dad had to endure teaching all eight of his kids how to drive. No wonder why he had high blood pressure!
