After receiving a B.S. in Computer Science from Harvey Mudd College in 2000, I worked as a software engineer for about 3 years. Then I spent 3 years reading and traveling before returning to school (Cal State LA) to earn an M.S. in Mathematics. I taught part-time at Cal State LA for 3 years, and then was hired by Mt. SAC as a full-time professor. It has been a great joy teaching at Mt. SAC, and getting to know the students here.
