Thunes Dave

David Thunes, E.I.T.

Process Engineer


Where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Appleton Wisconsin. I went to Appleton East High School and still volunteer there.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to learn new skills and build things on my free time. Currently I’m really into robotics, electronics, and programming. I’m working on a project to build a 3-axis CNC milling machine.

If you couldn’t be in your current role, what would be your alternate career?

I would love to develop educational toys for high school and middle school students and work part time at a coffee shop. An odd preference, I know.

What’s your pet peeve?

Squeaky shoes and commercials that are still too loud.

What’s your favorite vacation spot?

I went on a family trip to South Carolina once. We stayed a few hundred feet from the ocean and the water temperature was perfect.

What’s your favorite food?

I love almost any pasta dish. I also love Mexican food – possibly because that is the only thing I know how to make.

What is your favorite band/singer/song?

My taste in music is subject to drastic change without notice. Lately, I’ve been into Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show.

What’s your favorite movie?

Despite the horrible acting, I liked how immersive the world of Starship Troopers was.

What are some things most people don’t know about you?

My two brothers and I are left handed.

What’s your favorite part about working at Baisch?

The opportunity to learn and do new things.
