I joined Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) in Fall 2012 as a College Skills/Tutorial Center faculty member, having relocated with my family from Fresno, CA.
My initial career prior to teaching was as an Electrical Engineer in the Silicon Valley, where I served for seven years.
During that time I experienced a strong impression/calling upon my life to become a teacher. In 1990 I moved from the Silicon Valley to Fresno, CA, where I went back to school - obtaining both a Masters degree and Secondary Teaching Credential in Mathematics.
Since 1992 I have been involved with Mathematics education in some capacity - serving as a junior college instructor, high school mathematics and physics teacher, Curriculum Specialist (with UC Merced), and homeschooling dad (with my two daughters). To say that teaching mathematics has been a passion for quite some time now would be an understatement, to say the least!
I consider it a privilege to work at SRJC, and look forward to serving the students here for many years to come!
