It was love at first sight when I took my first microbiology course, and the enthusiasm for this topic never faded. After working several years in the trenches (on the bench) in the clinical microbiology laboratory and as a researcher, I became fascinated with antibiotics, resistance detection, and susceptibility testing. This passion resulted in my graduate work on “Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamases (ESBL)”, when ESBL was still considered a hot topic. Who would have imagined that so many other complex mechanisms of resistance would emerge after ESBLs?

My association with Hardy Diagnostics started in 2003, where I led the Tech Support/Quality Control/Research & Development departments until 2006 which culminated with the launch of StrepB Carrot Broth and a couple of early HardyCHROM products. After a 5 year stint in the Midwest, it is an honor to return to the warmth of Hardy Diagnostics and feel again the ocean breeze of California’s beautiful central coast.

On a personal note, my wife and I have two kids, and spend most of our free time driving them around for their extra-curricular activities, such as violin, chamber music, tennis, and Karate. When time allows, I enjoy backyard BBQ and spending time with loved ones.

As an American Society for Clinical Pathology licensed clinical microbiologist, with years of experience in the diagnostic microbiology industry, I strive to assist our customers in offering the products and services of Hardy Diagnostics.
