While at UCLA I had the opportunity to work as both a tutor and a teaching assistant. I really enjoyed helping students understand math and this led me to pursue a career in teaching. I taught my first full class while I was a graduate student at UCLA in 1993 and I have taught continuously ever since, including teaching full time at ARC since 2001. I continue to enjoy the teaching-learning process and love to find new ways of helping students to learn and be successful -- and hopefully enjoy math a bit more along the way.

On a personal note, I am blessed with a wonderful wife and four great daughters. Since 2016 I've also enjoyed being a grandfather (best thing ever!!)

I'm located on campus in Howard Hall 108. My office phone is 484-8091. Here are my Spring 2019 office hours:

Mon/Wed 10:25-11:30a

Tue 11:00a-12:00p

Thu 1:45-2:15p (online for Math 120 students only)
