Hi, I’m David. When people ask me what I do I jokingly say, ‘I make babies.’
I’m an andrologist, which means I specialize in working on the male side of the process. I work on anything sperm related, from a profile to a freeze to a surgical sperm preparation. I spend my days tucked away in the lab. If I do meet you, I’m happy to answer any questions about what it is that we do. I’m proud to be part of a close-knit, proactive and experienced lab team, which is part of a larger Genesis family.
I have been working at Genesis since early 2010. I’ve had a varied career path before my arrival here. I spent the majority of my time prior working in laboratories of the mining industry. I got sidetracked for a bit and had a short stint as a RCMP constable. I came to Genesis looking for a career where I could really make a difference. Through further education and much training I have been lucky enough to be afforded the opportunity to work here. I enjoy it immensely. It’s both challenging and rewarding. To play a part in helping patients realize their dreams of having a baby is a great honour. Eventually I hope to become an embryologist, but whatever my future entails, I plan on remaining in the fertility field. I’m not a person that always knew what they wanted to be when they grew up but I feel that at Genesis I have found a home.
I was born and raised in Vancouver. When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, keeping fit running or at the gym and playing lots of hockey. If you see me with a black eye or limping around the clinic, that’s the reason. I also like to do a lot of reading and I especially like to travel when I have the chance.
