David's level of expertise is balanced by his modest, friendly and approachable style. He has worked with clients in multiple countries on six continents. These clients have spanned the entire range of businesses.
"At times I think I've seen it all," says Bork. "Just when that happens, along comes something I've never seen. My work is so interesting, I plan to keep doing it as long as I can move my lips!"
David is an avid bicyclist who pedaled 15,000 miles between 2006 and 2009. In 2012 he completed the 500-mile "El Camino de Santiago" pilgrimage from southwestern France to Finesterra on the northwest coast of Spain. "I embarked on the pilgrimage as a punctuation of enormous gratitude for the extraordinary life I am having," says David. He loves to find the best coffee shop in the places he visits, where he can sit down and engage the locals. He's learning Spanish to enable further study of Mayan, Inca and Aztec cultures, which he finds fascinating. He's in search of the world's best banana cream pie. David's goal in life is to have his grandchildren squeal with delight when they see him… and they do!
