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, serving with both the U.S. Air Force (as a project officer) and Hewlett-Packard (as a computer systems administrator). 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 live and work at SRJC, and look forward to serving the students here for many years to come!
