David has been a member of the Beacon Lighthouse family since February 1, 2011. During that time he has had duties in different areas of production and sales. Currently, he has risen to the level of store manager at SAFB Ability One BSC and is doing a wonderful job. During his time with us we have had the joy of meeting his wonderful wife Rachel and learning of his four delightful children, plus, we have learned David has a little touch of wanderlust in that he would love to be able to travel to all 50 states.  He has been able to visit 21 states in addition to the United Kingdom and we do believe that before he is through he will have covered them all.

Good Job David!
