David Berube ’00 reviews data with ACCESS program students at the Ballona Wetlands

What’s your role at the university?
Clinical Associate Professor, Physics

How long have you been at LMU?
This is the beginning of my 11th year of full-time teaching at LMU.

What has been your proudest moment since you’ve been at LMU?
I’m always proudest at graduation when I get to see students who have worked so hard finally walk across that stage.

What do you enjoy most about your role at the university?
Every day is fun. Oftentimes, I’ll have a bunch of students in my office and I will say, “Can you believe I’m getting paid for this?”

Before working at LMU, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve had?
I worked in a deli/convenience store. It was interesting because I was held up at gunpoint!

What was the name of the last book you read?
“Universal Harvester” by John Darnielle

What would be the title of your autobiography?
“Happy Friday” or “The Funmudgeon”

If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I don’t know, but it would have to include a lot of cheese.

If you could enjoy dinner and conversation with anyone in history, who would it be and why?
It depends who’s paying!

When you’re away from work, what is your favorite thing to do?
I am a pretty boring person. I like watching TV (I shouldn’t admit that), reading, and spending time with my family and friends.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that others may not know.
In college I had orange hair.
