David grew up in North Carolina where he discovered his passion for chemistry in his early high school years. After graduating from North Carolina State University with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, he took two years to travel the world which landed him in South Lake Tahoe. Over the years he has worked in both the craft brewing, and distilling industries. He is excited to bring his keen eye and distilling knowledge to the quality assurance team.
When not at work, David enjoys everything that Lake Tahoe has to offer; from hiking, camping, and boating in the summer, to snowmobiling and snowboarding in the winter. Year round you can find David on the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu mats, where he is an avid competitor and kids’ coach.
