Academic Experience

I have been an Adjunct Instructor for the Civil Engineering, Surveying & Geospatial Technology (CESGT) Program here at SRJC since January 2016. I currently teach CEST 51 in the Fall and CEST 85 in the Spring. Please review the course outlines for detailed course information.

Work and Consulting Experience

I am currently working full-time as a Transportation Surveyor (TS) for Caltrans Field Surveys in Santa Cruz, District 5. I get the pleasure of working outdoors everday in beautiful places such as Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Big Sur. District 5 covers the counties of Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara, however there are other crews out of SLO who survey in the counties south of Monterey.

I have more than 30 years of combined experience in both private and public sectors - utilizing hand drafting, AutoCAD, Land Desktop, and Civil 3D in the Civil Engineering, Land  Surveying, and Mechanical Engineering fields.
