Favorite Quote: "Choose a job you love and you will never have to work another day in your life."
I grew up in a town very similar to Camarillo, called San Juan Capistrano-attending public school through the twelfth grade. I went to UCLA for college and majored in Math and Engineering. In fact, I thought I was going to be an engineer, but I fell in love with teaching and here I am 20+ years later and never regretting it. Bruin blue and gold are my favorite colors. I am married and have one son and one daughter. During my free time I like to play ping pong with my kids, play fantasy baseball, study the weather, SCUBA dive, and read the newspaper. I also like to build and fix things. Home Depot is my “toy” store. What I really like to do in my free time though is fly airplanes. I've had my pilots license for a long time, but really began flying more when my brother bought an airplane a couple years ago. The picture above is me in his airplane. I also put together a multi-screen flight simulator and now I am working on flying in clouds with instruments only. One final thing you should know about me is that I love being a teacher because every day is different and I enjoy seeing my students learn. I also learn from my students. Of course, I think it is important to have fun along the way too. I look forward to getting to know all of you as well.
