"Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom."
"All [ModelT] 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
Welcome to El Camino College! My personal history goes like this. I have been a math professor at ECC since January 2000. Way before then, and shortly after earning my bachelor's degree, I took a job with Logicon (now a part of Northrop Grumman) in San Pedro, California. I was a software analyst on three different systems (the peacekeeper MX missile launch control, submarine combat control, and automated target tieup to aircraft). The Cold War with the Soviet Union 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).
Welcome students, and good luck in your studies!
