I was raised here in Madera, California so I know what it is like attending Madera schools. I am here to make a change and help our students learn mathematics, so that they can thrive in a competitive job market once they graduate. I graduated from Madera High School and attended Clovis Community College where I was a member of the inaugural men’s soccer team. After a successful and very busy year, I transferred to CSU, Fresno where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and a Master of Science degree in Mathematics. My hobbies include hiking, sports, teaching, and coaching. One of the most important lessons I learned in my life is that you are only taken as seriously as you take yourself. Be driven, respectful, and ambitious.
