Southern California is my home planet, but I escaped to Pennsylvania in 2000 right before the rolling blackouts began. Ten months in a Ph.D. program in Statistics taught me that I first and foremost wanted to teach, so that was that and I've been a full-time instructor at BCCC since the fall of 2002. My passion for mathematics and teaching has only grown over the years, and I can honestly say I enjoy studying real analysis in my spare time. One of the biggest revelations for me has been that teaching arithmetic can be just as challenging as lecturing on differential equations.
