Albert Einstein, 'Out of My Later Years,' 1950, U.S. (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

"Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom."


Henry Ford, U.S. automobile industrialist (1863 – 1947)

"All [Model-T] Fords are exactly alike, but no two men [or women] are just alike. Every new life is a new thing under the sun; there has never been anything just like it before, never will be again. Look for the single spark of individuality that makes you different from other folks, and develop that for all it is worth. Society and schools may try to iron it out of you, but I say don't let that spark be lost; it is your only real claim to importance."


Personal History

M.S., Mathematics, Miami University (of Ohio) - 1993
Single Subject Teaching Credential (Math), California State University Long Beach - 1991
B.S., Mathematics/Computer Science, Western Illinois University -1983

Welcome to El Camino College! I have been teaching math here since 2000, but I have not always been a college professor. After earning a bachelor's degree, I took a job with Logicon in San Pedro (now a part of Northrop Grumman). I was a software analyst on three different systems (the peacekeeper MX missile launch control, submarine combat control, and automated target tie-up to aircraft). The Cold War ended around 1990. While working for Logicon I continued to study mathematics, earned a single subject teaching credential from CSULB, and accepted an offer into the graduate program at Miami University (of Ohio).
After earning a master's degree in mathematics, I took a job as consultant for
Cap Gemini. For six years I led a fast-paced consulting life and loved it. Corporate consulting had quick deadlines and shorter projects. I was an analyst and team manager at different corporations. The job allowed me to live in several U.S. locations, and after the recurrent travel-for-work became more tedious than fun, I settled back in the South Bay with its mild temperatures and ocean beauty. Teaching math has turned out to be the most satisfying (fun, challenging, ever-changing) and personally enriching job of all.

Here at El Camino College the latest technology is prevalent in the classrooms, and teaching and continued learning are paramount.

Welcome and good luck in your studies!
