I received my Bachelors Degree in General Mathematics as well as my Masters Degree in Pure Mathematics at California State University Long Beach. I soon began working part-time at El Camino College, Cypress College, LA Harbor College, Cerritos College, Rio Hondo College and California State Long Beach. I was hired at Mt. SAC as a full-time professor in 2000. I have enjoyed the friendly and dedicated faculty as well as the student body. My father was a great influence in my life and in dedication to his memory I offer a memorial scholarship through the Mt SAC Foundation in his name.
